PREFACE. 



A preface has been likened to "a visit of ceremony with half an 
excnse for not calling sooner, and half an apology for calling at all." 

Be this as it may, for various reasons, a preface seems an absolute 
necessity in a work of this kind. 

Moncure D. Conway says, "in the last generation young people 
who betrayed any interest in their ancestors were apt to be snubbed, 
and old family papers were abandoned to the mice, but gradually 
interest in genealogy has crept back." 

Well it is that this is so, for family history is often most inter- 
esting and inspiring. Unfortunately, the records of many old families 
have been neglected, lost, or destroyed; in this respect the Woodhull 
family has been particularly fortunate. Time-stained ancient records, 
old wills and deeds, as well as many printed references both in Eng- 
land and America, have furnished valuable material for this family 
history. 

The English references marked "In British Museum" were all ex- 
amined by Mr. Eufus King, the well known Genealogist of Yonkers, 
New York. With the exception of the above, and six or eight others 
the references, included in both parts of the Woodhull Genealogy, 
are the result of personal effort on the part of the authors of this 
Volume. 

Thanks are due to all of the Woodhull name or descent, who have 
furnished information, corrected doubtful data and aided in gathering 
material necessary for a work of this character. 

Those who have gone beyond this, we feel, are justly entitled to 
personal mention, viz.: Mr. Josiah Townsend Woodhull, Vice-Presi- 
dent of the Frost National Bank, of San Antonio, Texas; Mrs. Oliver 
Jones Woodhull, of the same city; John Francis Woodhull, Ph. D., 
of Columbia University; Colonel Alfred Alexander Woodhull, M. D., 
of Princeton University; Mr. Richard Lawrence Woodhull, of Setauket, 
Long Island; Mr. Lambert Woodhull, of Dayton, Ohio; Thenford 
Woodhull, Esq., of Brooklyn, New York, and Mr. Jesse Calvin Wood- 
hull, of the same city. Mrs. Benjamin Dorrance, of Dorranceton,

PART FIRST. 



NOBMANDY AND FLANDEKS IN THE CONQUEST. 

It has been said that Normandy and Flanders, in the olden days of 
chivalry, kept almost side by side in dignity, prosperity and prowess. 

History tells us that Matilda of Flanders, and her brave Knights, 
many of whom were Noblemen of high degree, joined William of 
Normandy in his great undertaking in 1066, and in return, Flanders, 
as well as Normandy, was richly rewarded with castles and lands in 
newly conquered England. 

Among the names which occur in the lists of the Conquerors of 
England, may be found those of "Gerbod," a son of Matilda by her 
first husband, "Gilbert of Ghent," and "Walter of Flanders." (See 
"History of the Norman People," by Edward A. Freeman, Vol. III., 
p. 312.) 

The last of the three Flemish Knights above named, was of a 
family derived from the Castellans of Cambray, of whom a Walter is 
mentioned by Baldric of Noyon, in his Chronicle, as "Lord of the 
Castle Lens" as early as 950 A. D. 

According to Des Bois, in his "Dictionnaire de la Noblesse," his 
son Walter II., was constituted hereditary Castellan of Cambray, soon 
after the above date, who had issue: I. Walter. II. Sicher, Bishop of 
Cambray. III. Ada de Cambray, who married the Baron of Oissy, and 
had issue Walter III., Castellan of Cambray in 1049. 

Hugh I., son of Walter, had issue Hugh II., Viscount of Meaux, 
living 1096, and Faistre D'Oissy, Advocate of Tournay 1098, ancestor 
of the great house of Avesne. 

"Walter Flanderensis or De Cambray, a younger brother, came to 
England 1066, and 1086 held a great Barony in Bedford, Bucks, and 
so forth, of which Woodhall or Wahull was the chief seat, and from 
him descended the barons Wahull, by Writ 1295." 

(See Dugdale and Banks, "Dormant and Extinct Peerage.") 

"Walter, a younger son (of the house of Cambray), accompanied 
the Conqueror in 1066. His descendants bore three crescents instead 
of one, as borne by the Castellans of Cambray." 

(See Quartering One in Wodhull Achievement.) 

"Walter (surnamed Flanderensis) obtained the Barony of Wahull, 
Bedford, which he held in 1086. 

"He had issue: I. Simon, from whom descended the Barons de 
Wahull, by Writ 1295: II. William, father of Eeiner: III. Walter, 
who appears in York 1120. 

"Eeiner Flanderensis, the son of William, founded Kirkly Priory, 
York. His son William Flanderensis granted lands at Wentworth to 
Fountains Abbey. 



10 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 

"William de Wentworth (or De Oissy, or De Cambray) married the 
heiress of Woodhouse. Hence came the great and unfortunate Earl of 
Stafford/' 

(See "Norman People and Their Descendants.") 



THE CROWN COMMISSIONER, OR DOMESDAY BOOK. 

As is well known, after the Conquest, the Norman William be- 
stowed vast estates upon his faithful Knights, and followers, taking 
the wise precaution, however, to scatter said estates over the newly 
acquired possessions in such a way as to make impossible any united 
effort, or uprising, between the different owners of the land. 

Every several manor was taxed with "customs" which were forth- 
with turned over to the royal treasury, and the Crown Commissioner, 
or Domesday Book was specially created to keep the records of these 
"customs." 

Herein were carefully kept the "extent and value of each estate, 
the names, numbers and conditions of its inhabitants, its value before 
and after the Conquest, and the sum due from it to the Crown." 

Says Hume, "The Domesday Book is the most valuable piece of 
antiquity possessed by any nation." 

The first record of the de Wahulle family in England is in Domes- 
day Book, where may be found the records of Walter Flandrensis, who 
held as feudal lord estates in Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and 
Buckinghamshire. 

The following excerpt is from "Domesday Book The Portion relat- 
ing to Northampton, Extended and Translated," by Stuart A. Moore. 
(See pp. 31-32, for XXXIX., Walter Flandrensis (otherwise called 
Walter de Wahulle) who held land in Pipewell in Rodewelle Hundred; 
Cottesbrook in Gisleburg Hundred; Hanging Houghton, Lamport and 
Withmale in same Hundred. Pitsford and Horton, in Spelehot Hun- 
dred; Evenley and Cannon; Ashby in Tovecestre Hundred; Evenley 
in Otboldestov Hundred. Land pertaining to Evenly in Sutone 
Hundred; Cold Higham in Tovecestre Hundred; Wotton in Wim- 
ereslea Hundred. Woodland and meadow in Claile Hundred; and 
land for twelve ploughs in Pateshull. 

(Folio 226 b, Column I. of Original Record to be seen at the Public 
Record Office, London, England, having been transferred thither from 
the Chapter House at Westminster, July 9th, 1859) according to Mr. 
Stuart Moore. 

Attention is here called to the various rendering of the family 
name, "Sinonyma sunt idem significantia Wahull, Wodhull, Wode- 
hull, Wodehill, Wodhill, Wodel, Wodil, Odell, Odill." (See "Miscel- 
lanea Genealogica, et Heraldica." Vol. I., Second Series, pp. 50, 78.) 

In the same interesting volume is found the following: — 

"Walter, baron of Wahull, sonne of Saherus, held the baron of 
Wahui in Bedfordshire of the King in cheife valued by year at 20 and 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 11 



A 38 H. 3. 1253, lie was destrained to passe over the seas with, the K. 
into Gascoigne, there to War with the K. of Castile. 

"It appeareth by Kecords exemplified that Simon de Wahull gave 
certaine landes in Woodhull (here oddly enough the spelling is the 
same as is in use to-day) to the prior and hospitall of Jerusalem in 
the days of John. 

"John, Baron of Wodhull, sonne of Walter was sum'oned amonge 
other Barons and Peeres of ye Eealm in ye 5 yeare of King Edward 
I. to be readie with his horse and armor to enter Wales with the King 
to suppress Leweline prince of Wales, then rebellinge who at that 
acknowledge ye seruice of 3 Kts. fees for his Baronie of Wodhull." 



SEATS AND FAMILY ESTATES. 

I. Wahull Castle — Co.: Bedford vide Domesday Book: 

"The Eiver Ouse runs under Wodhull, formerly Wayhul — which 
also has its Barons of Wayhul, eminent for their ancient nobility — 
where was a Castle whose Barony consisted of 300 Knights Fees in 
divers Counties." (See Camden's "Britannia/' p. 286.) 

Also, in Anthony Lower's "Family Names of Great Britain" is the 
following: "Wahull — The Seat of an Ancient Baron}' — The great 
Domesday Baron, known as Walter Flanderensis, from his being a 
Fleming held it, his family were called De Wahulls." 

In Lyson's "Magna Brittania," Vol. I., p. 10, is the statement: 
"Walter Flanderensis (ancestor of the barons Wahul) had five 
manors in the County of Bedford. The chief seat of the Wahuls, was 
at Wodhull, or Odell Castle." 

II. Pateshull Manor — Co.: Northampton vide Domesday Book: 
"Simon, 2nd, Baron de Wahull, gave moiety of Pateshull Church to 
Godston Priory temp. Henry I. or Stephen." (See Leland's 
"Itinerary.") 

III. Langford Manor — Co.: Bedford vide Domesday Book: "This 
Manor was parcel of the Barony of Wahull, and continued in posses- 
sion of the family of the Wahulls or Wodhulls, Lords of the Baronv 
till the reign of Edward IV. (1461.) 

IV. Segenhoe — Co.: Bedford vide Domesday Book: At the time 
of the Norman Survey 1081, parcels of the Barony of Wahull. There 
was anciently a Castle at Segenhoe which existed as late as the year 
1276, possibly a seat of the Barons Wahull. It is mentioned in the 
"Chronicle of Dunstaple Priory." 1276. 

Y. Bragborough Manor — Co.: Northampton — vide Domesdav 
Book: 

"The Manor of Bragsborough in this parcel was at the time of the 
Norman Survey, 1081, and long afterwards, parcel of the Barony of 
Wahull." 

VI. Shortgrove Manor — Co.: Essex.

So interesting is the description from "Bibliographa Topographa 
Brittanica," Vol. IV., it is given in full: 

"Odell, Woodhulle and formerly Wahul. The name of this village 
is from its situation Woodhull or Woodhill from the hill and fine wood 
near it. 

"It seems to be a very old and proper name for formerly it had 
belonged to Barons of Wahull, eminent for their ancient nobility, 
whose baronies consisted (says I). Holland) of 300 Knights fees. 

"The Castle must have been an impregnable fortress from its ad- 
vantageous situation near the river and on a rock of Considerable 
height and steep ascent. 

"Little remains of the old Works yet both the upper and base 
Court are very Conspicuous. The only habitable building is where 

stood the on an area of half an acre * * * particularly 

the South fort 105 feet long. 

"Among the paintings mentioned in Odell Castle were the follow- 
ing: 1. Thomas, Lord Crewe; 2. His Lady; 3. Thomas, Lord Crewe 
on Copper by Sir Peter Lely; 4. Several other family portraits, as 
Crewe Bishop of Durham." 

Also in "Magna Brittania," Vol. I., p. 121, we find the following 
bit of ancient historv. 

mj 

"Odell, in the hundred of Willey and deanery of Clopham, on the 
river Ouse, ten miles northwest of Bedford on the borders of North- 
amptonshire." 

Leland, who visited Bedfordshire in the reign of Henry VIIL, 
describes Odell Castle, or "Great Woodhull" Castle as "strange ruins 
belonging to Lord Bray." 

Says Lyson, "It seems difficult to reconcile this with its descent 
from the Lords Wahul, to the Chetwodes, which is proved by various 
records. The family of Wahul continued in the male line as Lords 
Wahul till the time of Henry VIIL, when the heir female of Anthony 
titular Lord Wahul, married Kichard Chetwode, Esq., of Oakley in 
Staffordshire." 

An older record says, "Odell Castle stands on an eminence and 
commands a beautiful view of the river Ouse, and the adjacent coun- 
try, very little remains of the old building. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 13 



"The Manor of Little Odell (probably in close proximity to Odell) 
was at the time of the Norman Survey part of the estate of Eustace 
Earl of Bouloigne, but was sometime afterwards annexed to the 
Barony of Woodhull." 



THE DE WAHULL PEEKAGE. 

The following is taken from Sir Bernard Burke's "Dormant, 
Abeyant, Forfeited and Extinct Peerages." (New edition, London, 
1883.) 

"Wahull — Barons De Wahull. By Writ of summons, dated 26, 
Jan., 1297. 

Walter De Flanders came into England with the Conqueror and 
held as feudal lord, at the time of the General Survey, considerable 
estates in the counties of Bedford and Northampton, of which Wahull 
(now Wodhull) in the former shire, was the head of the barony. 

To this Walter succeeded. Walter De Wahull, whose son Simon 
De Wahull, in the time of King Henry I., or Stephen, with Sibyll, his 
wife, gave the church of Langford to the Knights Templars. 

His son and successor, Walter De Wahull, certified, in the 12th 
year of the reign of Henry II. (1165) on the assessment of the aid for 
marrying the King's daughter, his knight's fees to be twenty-seven 
and three. He was later concerned in the insurrection of Eobert, Earl 
of Leicester, and was made prisoner in a battle near St. Edmundsbury. 
By his first wife, Albreda, widow of Guy de St. Valery, Walter De 
Wahull had no issue, but by Eoesia, his second wife, he had two 
daughters and two sons, Simon and John. 

His successor Simon De Wahull was fined in the 22nd year of 
Henry II. (1175) for trespassing in the King's forests. In the 16th 
year of King Kichard I. (1194) he paid 27 pounds toward the sum 
levied for the King's redemption. 

This Simon gave to the Nuns at the Convent of Godstone, where 
his two daughters Mary and Cicely had entered, a moiety of the church 
of Pateshull in Northamptonshire. He died two years later when 
Henry, Archbishop of Canterbury, paid 333 pounds, 6 shillings, 8 
pence for the wardship of his heir, which was John De Wahull. 

This feudal lord died in 1216, leaving his sisters his heirs, viz. 
Eoesia, married to Eobert L'Isle; and Agnes, who was married first to 
Eobert de Bassingham, and secondly to William Fitz-Warrine, but 
neither sister appears to have had any surviving issue, and the honor 
of Wahull devolved upon the heir male of the family, Saiher De 
Wahull, son of John's uncle who died in 1250 and was succeeded by 
his son, Walter De Wahull, who upon doing his homage and giving 
security to pay 100 pounds for his relief, had living of the honor of 
Wahull, and the other lands of his inheritance. 

He married Helewyse, daughter of Hugh de Vivon, and died in 
the year 1269, and was succeeded by his son, John De Wahull, who 



14 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



attained his majority in the next year. In the 22nd, year of Ed- 
ward I. reign (1293) he had a military summons to march into 
Gascony, and also to proceed against the Welsh. He married Agnes, 
daughter of Henry Pinkeney, and dying in 1295 was succeeded by his 
son, Thomas De Wahull. 

This feudal lord was summoned to Parliament as a Baron, 26, 
Jan. 1297, in the 25th, year of Edward I. He died in 1304 
seized of the Barony of Wahull, as also of the Manor of Wahull in 
County Bedford, and Pateshull in Northamptonshire, leaving by his 
wife Hawise, daughter of Henry Praers, an infant son and heir John 
De Wahull, who although possessing the honors of Wahull had no 
similar summons to Parliament, nor had any of his descendants. 

He died in the 10th, year of the reign of Edward III. (1337), 
leaving by Isabella, his wife, two sons, first John (Sir) whose line 
terminated in heiresses, his granddaughters, Elizabeth and Eleanor, 
who both d. s. p. 

Nicholas, the second son (or his son) upon the termination of 
the elder Sir John De Wahull, succeeded to the estate and became 
Nicholas De Wahull of Wahull. He married Margaret, daughter of 
John Foxcote, Esq., and had issue, Thomas, his successor; Richard, 
Edith, who married Emesworth, and Margaret who married Simon 
Brown. 

He died in the 12th, year of Henry IV. (1411), and was succeeded 
by his eldest son Thomas De Wahull, who married Elizabeth sister and 
heir of Sir Thomas Chetwode Kt. and had two sons, Thomas and 
William. He died in the 9th, year of the reign of Henry V., and 
was succeeded by Thomas De Wahull, who married Isabel, eldest 
daughter of Sir William Trussell, of Elmesthorp, and had issue, John, 
Thomas and Isabel who married Bowden. 

He was succeeded by his eldest son John De Wahull or Wodhull 
who married Jean, daughter of Henry Etwell, of London, and had 
four sons, Fulk, Thomas, William and John, and three daughters, 
Elizabeth, Anne and Mary. 

He was succeeded by his eldest son, Fulk Wodhull, who married 
Anne, daughter and heir of William Newenham, of Thenford, North- 
amptonshire (by Margaret, his wife, one of the daughters and co-heirs 
of Thomas Lamport) and had issue, Nicholas, his successor, Thomas, 
Lawrence of Molington, County Warwick, Mary, who married Edward 
Cope, Esq., and Isabel, who married Eichard Tresham, Esq., of 
Newton, Northamptonshire. 

Fulk Wodhull died in the 24th, year of the reign of Henry VII. 
(1508), and was succeeded by his eldest son, Sir Nicholas Wodhull 
Knight. He married for his first wife, Mary, daughter of Richard 
Raleigh, Esq., of Farnborough, County Warwick, and had issue, 
Anthony, Barbara, who married Edmund Medwinter, Esq., and Joice. 

For his second wife, Sir Nicholas married Elizabeth, daughter, 
and co-heir of Sir William Parr, Lord Parr of Horton (of whom 
more later), and had Fulk, who married Alice, daughter of William 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 15 



Collis, Esq., of Leigh, County Worcester, and who was the ancestor of 
the Wodhulls of Thenford, Northamptonshire. Anne, his daughter, 
married David Seamour, Esq., Mary married Richard Burnaby, Esq., 
of Watford, Northamptonshire. 

Sir Nicholas died in the 23rd, year of the reign of Henry VIII. 
(1532), and was succeeded by his eldest son Anthony Wodhull, who 
coming of age in the 31st, year of the same reign (1540), had livery 
on his lands, but died two years after, and left by Anne, daughter 
of Sir John Smith, an only daughter and heiress, Agnes, who married 
first, Richard Chetwode, Esq. (3rd, son of Roger Chetwode, Esq., of 
Oakley, by Ellen Masterton his wife), and had a son and heir, Richard 
Chetwode, of whom presently. Alice married secondly, Sir George 
Calverly Knight; and had two sons, who died before her. 

Lady Calverly was succeeded in the 18th, year of Queen Elizabeth's 
reign (1576) by her only son, Sir Richard Chetwode, who in the 
reign of James I. (1603) preferred a claim to the Barony of Wahull or 
Wodhull (as possessor of the Manor and Castle of Odell, or Wodhull), 
his petition being referred to the Duke of Lennox, the Lord Howard, 
and the Earl of Nottingham, these noblemen returned the following 
certificate: — 

"According to your Majesty's direction, we have met and consid- 
ered the petition of Sir Richard Chetwode, and find that before any 
usual calling of barons by writs, his ancestors were barons in their 
own right, and were summoned to serve the Kings in their wars with 
other barons, and were also summoned to Parliament. 

"And we conceive the discontinuance to have arisen from the 
lord of the honour dying at one year of age, and the troubles of the 
times ensuing, but still the title of baron was allowed in all the reigns 
by conveyance of their estates and by pardon of alienation from the 
crown by the King's own officers and 9 pounds a year, per annum, 
being the ancient fee for the castle guard of Rockingham, was con- 
stantly paid, and is paid to this day, so that though there has been 
a disuse, yet the right so fully appearing, which cannot die, we have 
not seen or heard of any one so much to be regarded in grace, and 
in consideration of so many Knights fees, from the very time of the 
Conquest, and by him held this day, and a pedigree both on the 
father and mother's side, proved by authentic records from the time 
of the Conquest (which in such cases are very rare) we hold him, 
worthy of the honor of a baron, if your Majesty thinks meet." 

(Signed) LENOX, 

HOWARD, 
NOTTINGHAM. 

The King offered to make Sir Richard Chetwode Baron of Wod- 
hull by patent, according to Sir Bernard Burke, "but that gentle- 
man," says the writer upon the Peerage, "considered the offer derog- 
atory and declined.' 



16 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



It seems scarcely likely that Sir Eichard would purchase what 
was his birthright from his mother, Agnes, eldest daughter and heir 
of Sir Anthony Wodhull. 

In the first paragraph of the certificate signed by the Duke of 
Lennox, Lord Howard and the Earl of Nottingham, they used the 
term "barons in their own right," and declared the de Wahulls pos- 
sessed said right. The following explanation of the term is given 
in Dugdale's "Baronage," Vol. I., page 79: — 

"The celebrated Earl Warrine (or Warren) upon being asked (after 
the Conqueror's time) concerning his right to the estates in his 
possession (which were many) drew his sword and declared that Will- 
iam (the Conqueror) did not secure the Kingdom by himself alone, 
but that the barons, his ancestors among them were joint adventurers 
in the enterprise." 



AN ALLIANCE OF NOTE. 

As before stated, Sir Nicholas Wodhull married Elizabeth, 
daughter and co-heir of Sir William Parr, of Horton, who was 
uncle and Chamberlain to Queen Katherine Parr, last wife of 
Henry VIII. 

Sir William Parr was created Lord Parr 1539, Marquis of North- 
ampton 1517, styled Lord Marmion and Lord St. Quentin 1550. (See 
"The Ancestor," number IV., pp. 15 and 16, January, 1903.) 

Elizabeth Parr was a descendant of William the Conqueror through 
his youngest daughter Gundred. (See Ockerby's "Book of Dignities") 
for the following: 

"Born of the Norman Line, Issue of William I. Gundred mar- 
ried to William Earl of Warren and Surrey." (See also extract from 
Charles Browning's "Americans of Koyal Descent," Genealogical 
Appendix, Part II., note A.) 

Elizabeth Parr brought quarterings 8 to 18 by inheritance from 
her father, her grandfather, and her mother. She was also a descend- 
ant of Edward I., and William the Lion of Scotland. 



WODHULLS IN NORTHAMPTONSHIRE. 

According to one account, the Estate of Thenford came into the 
Wodhull family in the time of Henry VII. (1485). Another says: 

"Fulk Wodhull gent, lord of Langford and Somerton Man- 
ors bought the Manor of Thenford Aug. 7th, Elizabeth's reign 
(1565)." 

Nicholas Wodhull, great-great grandson of Thomas and Elizabeth

of our Lady/ in church of Warkworth, and directed his executors 
to provide an honest priest of good conversation with a yearly salary 
of 8 marks (£5. 6s. 8d.) to say and sing masses for his soul and the 
souls of his father and mother for 12 years. 

"He also bequeathed £10 toward rebuilding the steeple, a gown 
of black satin to make a cope thereof, and his wife's apparel to be 
made into vestments and other ornaments to the honour of God and 
said church. 

"He died in May falling seized of the Manor of Warkworth, held 
by the Bishop of Lincoln, as of his Manor of Banbury, leaving An- 
thony Wodhull his son and heir aged 14, after whose decease it 
returned into the family of Agnes, daughter and heir, with Richard 
Chetwode, Esq. 

"She died 1585 succeeded by her son Sir Richard Chetwode, who 
in 1659 conjointly with his son Richard, sold the Manor of Wark- 
worth, with another estate, to Philip Holman, Esq., for £14.000." 

On page 741 Baker's "History of Northampton," is found the fol- 
lowing: "In Warkworth Castle gallery, are arms, quarterings and 
crests of several of the nobility of England. 

"The arms and quarterings of Crewe were seen on a stone dated 
1592. 1st, Chetwode, 2nd, Crewe, 3rd, Sounds, 4th, Reys, 5th, Rowley 
or Raleigh, 6th, Henhull, 7th, Woodhull, 8th, Oakley, 9th, Chetty, 
10th, a fess (Ermine) in chief three leopards' heads, 11th, Lyons, 
12th, Newnenham." 

A number of years ago Warkworth Castle was burned to the 
ground, Odell or Great Wodhull Castle has been in ruins for many 
years, but Thenford Manor with its ancient chapel still remain. 

The Estate of Thenford, near Banbury Cross and nearer Middle- 
ton, in the County of Northamptonshire, is a noble one. 

In the reign of Henry VIII. Nicholas Wodhull, son and heir of 
Fulk Woodhull, devised Thenford to Fulk Wodhull, Esq., his eldest 
son by his second wife, Elizabeth Parr, daughter and heir of Sir 
William Parr, of Horton, and it continued in the Wodhull family 
down to the extinction of the line upon the death of Michael Wodhull, 
Esq. (1815). 

(The manner in which it passed out of the family and name will 
be related further on.) 



THE ANCIENT CHURCH AT THENFORD. 

The English Chronicler Morton says, "The Church at Thengford 
(or Thenford) was perhaps built upon a burial place of the Romans, 
for in digging a grave in the churchyard was found an urn contain- 
ing ashes, and also a medal of the Emperor Constans, as the worship- 
ful J. Wodhull, Esq., of Thengford, has informed me." 

Four miles east of Banbury, Northamptonshire, stands the small 
church of St. Mary's. Its architecture is chiefly of the XIV. century,

very good work, with some portions of an earlier date, and a Tower 
of the XV. Century at the West end. 

The nave has on the North side two plain obtusely-pointed arches 
on massive octagon pillars, with plain Capitals, probably semi-Nor- 
man; on the South side are two obtusely-pointed arches, also plain, 
with octagon pillars the Capitals of which have the Norman abacus 
and stiff leaf foliage. 

The windows of the Clerestory are of the XIV., and the roof of 
the XV. Century. Both the aisles are of the XIV. Century; with 
Decorated windows, two of these on the North side have very good 
corbels to the inner arches of the window, and beautiful Decorated 
foliage. 

The Chancel is of the early part of the XIV. Century; with a 
fine East window of three lights foliated. The South door is plain, 
late Norman work. There is a good Screen of open wood- work, which 
appears to be mostly of the XV. Century. The church contains some 
fine windows of ancient stained glass. 

There is a Jacobean monument with effigy, assigned to Fulk 
Wodhull, who died 1613, and who was Lord of Thenford Manor in 
the reigns of Queen Elizabeth and King James I. 

This monument is under the upper window of the North aisle. 
It is of freestone, having the cornice supported by four half 
pillars. 

Upon the tomb is the figure of an armed man, in trunk-breeches, 
with his head upon two pillows, his hands in a praying posture. 

"In the Church Tower are five bells with the following inscrip- 
tions: 

No. I. "Michael Wodhull, benefactor 1731." 
" II. "William Eing, Church- Warden 1731." 
" III. "Edward Hemins feet 1731 W: R: C: W:" 
" IV. "Praves the Lord 1601." (In raised letters.) 
" V. (Tenor) "John Briant, Hereford, fecit 1806. C. Howard 
and J. Law, C. W. E. Stafford Vicar." 

Nos. I., II. and III. were evidently all made by the same founder. 

"The Pulpit is new with a band of good Decorated carved oak 
work round it near the top with medallions of Faith, Hope and 
Charity and other allegorical figures below it. 

"Under the Tower are some fragments of Dec: oak work, another 
Wodhull stone and an ancient oak post, bearing the Wodhull coat of 
arms, formerly called the "pump stock," which stood in the West of 
the church and was for safe keeping of the parish deeds and so forth. 
It has a good lid and has also possibly, been used as an almsbox."

(Note. — It will be readily seen at a glance that the foregoing copy 
of the Parish Eegister contains no records of christenings in the Wod- 
hull family between the years 1604 and 1629. 

This may or may not be the result of willful tampering with said 
records, but tradition has it, and it is believed by those best qualified 
to judge, that some of the records are undoubtedly missing. 

In any event, the record of the birth of Eichard Wodhull, the 
progenitor of the family in America, is apparently not in existence. 
Be this as it may, all accounts of him in ancient family papers, and 
through family history, agree that he was born at Thenford, North- 
amptonshire, England, September 13, 1620.)

SOME MAGNA CHAETA BARONS. 

According to Blackstone, the title of Baron is of great antiquity. 
He says, "The most probable opinion seems to be, that they were the 
same with our present Lords of Manors." 

On July 15, 1215, at Runnymede, between Stains and Windsor, a 
momentous conference took place between King John and the barons 
of England. To quote S. M. Johnson: 

"Thus by a great rebellion of the barons, England's worst and 
weakest Monarch was compelled to grant a charter which declared 
rebellion lawful and provided means for lawfully conducting." 

In one day the Magna Charta "that earliest monument of English 
freedom" was drawn up signed and sealed, and the liberty of the 
English people assured forever. 

Among the barons most determined to obtain this longed for 
freedom, was the influential Eustace De Vesci, whose name is in the 
Covenant of Security. 

Henry Knighton, a Canon-regular of Leicester Abbey who lived in 
the time of Richard II., asserts that Eustace De Vesci married a very 
beautiful woman — Margaret, daughter of William (the Lion), King of 
Scotland, whom De Yesci kept away from the Court, as it appears 
King John had become enamored of her. 

As this baron was "an inveterate enemy of the King and a princi- 
pal leader in the insurrection," the story seems quite probable. 

Brief notice of the Wodhull ancestor Robert de Ros, who married 
Isabel, the Scottish princess: There were two sons, William and 
Robert. William de Ros second baron was one of the competitors for 
the Crown of Scotland in the 19th, year of Edward L, through his 
grandmother Isabel, daughter of William the Lion. 

Robert de Ros and Eustace de Yesci are in the list of the twenty- 
five sureties of the Magna Charta and are the lineal ancestors of the 
founders of the Order of Runneymede. (See Browning's "Magna 
Charta Barons And Their Descendants," page 60.) 

The following very interesting and valuable account is taken 
entire from Browning's book, "The Magna Charta Barons": 

Yesci — Barons Yesci. 
By writ of summons dated 29th December, 1264. 

Lineage. 

Among the most valiant of the Norman Nobility in the train of 
the Conqueror were Robert De Yesci, who possessed at the General 
Survey the lordship of Badebrock in Northamptonshire with divers 
other estates in the counties of Warwick, Lincoln and Leicester. 

Yvo De Yesci, upon whom King William (the Conqueror) be- 
stowed in marriage Ada, only daughter and heiress of William Tyson, 
Lord of Alnwick, in Northumberland, and Malton in Hastings. 

By this great heiress Yvo had an only daughter and heir, Beatrice 
De Yesci, who married Eustace Eitz-Joan (or John) Lord of Knares- 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY, 23 



borough in Yorkshire, and had two sons (their father Eustace Fitz- 
John was nephew and heir of Serlo de Burgh, of the great family of 
Burgh). 

The eldest son of Beatrice having inherited the great possessions 
of his mother's family, assumed its surname and became William De 
Vesci. 

He espoused Burga, sister of Eobert de Stutevil, by whom he had 
two sons, Eustace his successor upon attaining his majority in the 
second year of Richard I. (Cceur de Lion) gave two thousand three 
hundred marks for livery of his lands, with liberty to marry whom he 
pleased. 

Eustace De Vesci was one of the twenty-five celebrated Barons 
to enforce the observance of Magna Charta. He married the Scottish 
Princess Margaret, daughter of William and sister of Alexander Kings 
of Scotland, and was succeeded by his son, William De Vesci. 

Eustace was slain about 1216 by an arrow from the ramparts of 
Balmoral Castle (belonging to Hugh de Baliol). 

William De Vesci in the 10th, year of Henry III. obtained livery 
of his lands as well as the Castle of Alnwick. By his first wife he had 
no issue. His second wife (by whom he had issue) was Agnes, 
daughter of William de Ferrers/'

AEMOEIAL BEAEINGS. 

In by-gone days knights and nobles were known by their "shield 
and its blazon," and the "coat-of-arms" is still indicative of family 
standing and past renown, as well as being of importance to the 
student of history and heraldry. 

In the reign of Henry V. (1413) the victorious monarch who 
gained Harfleur and Agincourt, was given to the "College of Arms" 
the task of "recording all coats of arms in existence." 

In the reign of Henry IV., "Commission of Visitation" was or- 
dered but seems not to have been carried out successfully until the 
reign of Henry VIII. From this period "Visitations" have been made 
about every thirty years, and have proved of great interest and value 
to lovers of heraldry and genealogy. 



THE WODHULL ACHIEVEMENT. 

The following interesting relation is taken from the "New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Kecord" (October, 1870). 

"It is now proposed, to give an account of a remarkable heraldic 
painting in the possession of Eichard Woodhull, Esq., of Setauket, 
Brookhaven, Suffolk Co., New York. This, which is an achievement 
of eighteen quarterings, was probably sent out from England in or 
about the year 1687 to Eichard Wodhull, who had come from Then- 
ford Manor in Northamptonshire and settled in Brookhaven a few 
3 r ears previously. (He was in America in the year 1648)." 

"Most of the heiresses are representatives of baronial houses, many 
of them co-heiresses whose sisters have carried the same quarterings 
into the noblest families of England. 

"Lady Alice Neville was descended on the side of both father 
and mother from King Edward I. An ancestor of Eobert de Eos of 
Werke, married Isabel, daughter of William the Lion King of Scot- 
land, and Margaret, Lady de Eos, was descended from the great Earl 
of Warren, whose wife Gundred, was the youngest daughter of William 
the Conqueror. 

Eighteen quarterings 5.5.4.4. 

1. Or three crescents gules, for Wodhull. 

2. Argent on a cross azure, five escallops or, for Foxcote. 

3. Quarterly argent and gules, five crosses pattee counter-

ham.

10. Argent a saltier gules fretty or, for Cloplmll. 

11. Or a fret gules, for Yerdon. 

12. Azure three chevrons interlaced and a chief or, for Fitz-Hugh. 

13. Barry of twelve or and azure an eagle displayed gules, for 
Gernegan. 

14. Gules a bend between six crosses crosslet or, for Fourneys or 
Furneaulx. 

15. Barry of six argent and azure on a bend gules three martlets 
or, for Grey. 

16. Vair a fess gules, for Marmion. 

17. Or three chevrons gules a chief vair, for St. Quinton. 

18. Gules a lyon rampant or between three crescents argent, for 
Salusbury. 

The shield is borne upon a mantle (not mantling) gules lined with 
ermine. 

The crest is out of a ducal coronet or a pair of wings endorsed 
gules. 

There was no Motto, but the one used by most of the family for 
many years is "Sequor nee Inferior/' This was the motto of the 
Crewe family. 

In Blayde's "Visitation of Bedfordshire/' pages 6, 7, 68 and 69, 
may be found, "All the coats belonging to the families in the Pedi- 
grees of the Wahulls or Wodhulls." 

In an "ancient roll printed in the Parliamentary Writs," Francis 
Palgrave found the following extract, "Sire — De Wahulle de or a 
cressanz de goules." 

The following is a list of those who married in the Wodhull and 
Chetwode families: 

Beresford, Braybroke, Bulkeley, Chetwode, Crewe, Cotes, Drucy, 
Etwall, Fitzpeter, Fitzwarren, Foxcote, Grene, Griffin, Hanky, Hen-

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF MICHAEL WODHULL, ESQ. 

The late Michael Wodhuil, Esq., "a gentleman of liberal princi- 
ples, great benevolence, and extensive learning," was born in August, 
1740, at Thenford, in Northamptonshire. 

He attended the school of the Rev. William Cleaver, two of whose 
sons became Bishop of Asaph and Archbishop of Dublin, and the third 
a student of Christ Church, Oxford. All three were warmly attached 
to Michael Wodhuil throughout life. 

From Twyf ord, he went to Winchester school, thence to Brasenose, 
Oxford. In 1761 he married a lady of ancient family, Caroline Milcah 
Ingram, of Wolford, Warwickshire, a lady of great personal accom- 
plishments and unusually beloved. 

Michael Wodhuil was a profound scholar "without an equal in his 
knowledge of French criticism and printers in the sixteenth century." 

He is said to have been the first translator into English verse of all 
the tragedies and fragments of Euripides which are extant. 

His translation of the "Medea" forms part of Volume 69 of Sir 
John Lubbock's "Hundred Books." 

Five more of the plays in his translations are in Henry Morley's 
"Universal Library," Volume 58, and "Hecuba," with seven others of 
his renderings, are in Volume 61. 

His other writings included Ode to John Cleaver, M. A. student of 
Christ Church, 1763. "Equality of Mankind, a Poem," 1765. For 
these poems see "Collection of Poetry," by Pearch (Vol. 4). 

Poems revised, edited, 1804, containing a portrait of Wodhuil 
painted by Gardiner in 1801, and engraved by E. Harding. It is re- 
produced in Quaritch's "Collectors." Two of his poems are in the 
"Poetic Register" for 1806-7 (pp. 241-4, 481-3). 

He suppressed his "Ode to Criticism" which he wrote when very 
voung, in satire of some peculiarities in Thomas Warton's poems; but 
Warton inserted it in "The Oxford Sausage" (1814, pp. 131-8). 

Michael Wodhuil also assisted in the fourth edition of Harwood's 
"View of the Classics" (1790), and Dibdin's "Introduction to the 
Classics" (3rd, edition). 

He was a frequent contributor to the "Gentlemen's Magazine," 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 33 



usually signing himself "L. L.," the final letters of his name. He 
figures in the "Bibliomania" as Orlando (1876, pp. 575-7). 

His library shelves contained about four thousand volumes, many 
of them first editions, numbers of them were bound by Eoger Payne 
in Wodhulr's "favorite Pussia leather" with his arms on the cover. 

"He not only bought but read his books." 

In his "History of Northampton," Baker gives the following con- 
cerning Thenford Manor. 

"In the hall of Thenford is a portrait of Charles I. by Vandyck. 
In the dining room a landscape by Zueharelli. In the South library 
is a whole length portrait of the late Mrs. Woodhull by Zoffani. A 
Queen Henrietta Maria, by Vandyck, a Venetian Nobleman, by 
Titian, Venus, from Titian, Kuben's wife, from Eubens, Vandyck's 
wives as the three Graces, by Vandyck. 

"The North and South libraries are rich in ancient lore. In every 
volume, is the autograph of the collector, the price, date when, and the 
person from whom purchased." 

Alexander Chalmers wrote of Michael Wodhull: "He never entered 
public life his chief occupation being that of a student and a collector 
of rare books and manuscripts. 

"With the large fortune left him by his father he beautified 
and improved the estate. His town house was in Berkley Square, 
London. 

"As a son, a husband, a friend, a master, few could excel him, and 
his charities which were numerous, were known only to those 
benefited. 

"His practice even when infirm, was to attend service in his parish 
church, to read or procure some friend to read, sermons and prayers 
to his family and domestics every Sunday evening." 

Michael Wodhull died November 10, 1816, aged seventy-seven 
years. By his will dated August 21, 1815, he devised Thenford and 
his other estates to his deceased wife's sister, Mrs. Mary Ingram, who 
died in 1824. 

Thenford and the other estates were left by this lady to her 
nephew, Samuel Amy Severne, Esq. In 1886, Thenford was rented to 
the Graysbrooks. 

The rare and valuable library collected by Michael Wodhull, Esq., 
was sold at auction by Mr. J. E. Severne on January 11, 15, 20, 1886. 
The books being dispersed among various London dealers. 

The total amount of the sale was £11,972 14s. 16d. The Library 
of Congress in Washington, D. C, is in possession of two copies of the 
catalogue with the prices at which the books sold.

Also, a Genealogical Appendix containing Notes of Allied Families and 
Biographical Sketches of Members of the Woodhull Family 



INTRODUCTION TO PART SECOND. 



To make the plan of our work clear, a few words of explanation 
are in order. 

Part Second, The Woodlmll Family in America, contains the 
Genealogical Tables, prefaced by a Biographical Sketch of Kichard 
Wodhull I., the founder of the family in America. 

The Genealogy proper, running in chronological order, according 
to generations, is followed by a Genealogical Appendix containing 
many valuable Notes regarding allied families, after which follows 
the Biographical Sketches in chronological order without regard to 
generations. An extensive reference list and the index to the Genea- 
logical Tables finish Part Second. 

Attention is called, first, to the words "Canadian Line," appended 
to many of the genealogical tables; all the descendants of Benjamin 
Woodhull and Patience Terry, of Long Island, who removed to 
Canada in early colonial days, are thus designated. 

Second, the authors of this Genealogy must state in self defense, 
that in several instances dates were sent in for the same people, 
differing from a few days to more than two years, and notwithstand- 
ing many months of careful labor, errors and discrepancies doubtless 
occur, which fact is deeply regretted, but seems impossible of rectifi- 
cation. 

It will be noticed that each descendant of Richard Wodhull I., of 
the name of Richard (who was an eldest son), is designated thus: 
II., III., etc., throughout the entire Genealogy. 

Also, those who in Colonial times filled the then important po- 
sitions of Justice of the Peace, or Judge of the Court of Common 
Pleas, have been given the title of Hon. 

As many of our subscribers are aware, John Francis Woodhull, 
Ph. D., of Columbia University, has in course of preparation an 
interesting "Woodhull Directory," which it is his hope and intention, 
at some future time to publish, his purpose being to re-issue, at inter- 
vals of from three to five years, a small, inexpensive Pamphlet con- 
taining births, marriages, deaths, addresses and occupations of mem- 
bers of the Woodhull family. 

(41) 



42 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 

With this in view, it has not been thought necessary or advisable 
to add addresses, owing to the costly nature of the work, and the 
limited number of subscribers, the numerous Notes and Biographies 
having been deemed of greater interest. 

A word of explanation is necessary regarding references to "Gene- 
alogy." Each of the Wodhull and Woodhull name, male and female, 
will be marked numerically, thus 1, 2, 3, 4, etc., etc. 

The number will accompany the name when marriage brings a 
separate genealogical table. 

The numeration in each generation, of those who married, will 
be according to the precedence of birth date. 

In passing from the paternal genealogical table to that of a 
married son or daughter indicated thus "of whom later," find the 
number and the generation. 

Family Notes and Biographical Sketches are indexed in the 
"Genealogical Appendix," and will be readily found. 

Attention is finally called to the blank pages at the end of the 
Genealogy, and those who are interested in the future history of the 
family are urged to keep careful records of all births, marriages and 
deaths, which will prove of inestimable value to some future historian 
of the Woodhull family. 




RICHARD WODHULL HOMESTEAD 

At Setauket, Long Island. 

The rear portion of the house is supposed to have been built in 1655. 



Biographical Sketch I. 



PART SECOND. 



THE WOODHULL FAMILY IN AMERICA. 

The Woodhulls in America are the descendants of Richard Wod- 
hull I., who was born, probably, at Thenf ord, Northamptonshire, Eng- 
land, September 13, 1620. 

(See Benjamin F. Thompson's "History of Long Island," also 
"American Ancestry," and many other references.) 

The date of Richard Wodhull's marriage, and his wife Deborah's 
surname are uncertain. The tombstones of Richard Wodhull L, and 
Richard Wodhull II., with those of their wives, were ruthlessly de- 
stroyed during the Revolutionary War. The original Family Bible is 
also missing, the oldest obtainable, being that of Richard IV., who 
was born in the year 1712. 

It is strongly believed by some that Richard Wodhull I., married 
Deborah Crewe. According to Dr. Samuel Johnson, first President 
King's College, in a letter to his son in the year 1757, Richard Wod- 
hull II., was "cousin german by his mother, to Lord Crewe, father of 
the Bishop of Durham, whose niece was mother to the present Earl 
of Walgrave or Waldgrave." 

This seems for several reasons highly possible, but so far, it has 
been impossible to secure access to the private pedigrees of the Crewe 
family. 

The Crewe motto "Sequor nee Inferior" was adopted by the Wood- 
hull family and, as will be seen further on, the families of Crewe and 
Wodhull were intimately associated as friends and kinsmen. 

(See Beardsley's "Life and Letters of Dr. Samuel Johnson, First 
President of King's College.") 

The exact date of Richard Wodhull's arrival in this country is un- 
certain, but it was prior to April 29th, 1648, as on that date he 
witnessed a deed at Easthampton, Long Island. 

(See Thompson's "History of Long Island," Yol. L, p. 294.) 

The name of Richard Wodhull appears among the early settlers 
of the town of Jamaica, but he is said to have had a distaste for the 
policy of the Dutch Government, and hence removed to another part 
of the Island. He finally settled permanently at Setauket Harbor, 
then called Cromwell Bay, or Ashford, in the year 1656. 

Mr. Richard Lawrence Woodhull (at present occupying the old 
family homestead at Setauket) has in his possession a Patent from Sir 
Edmund Andros, Colonial Governor of the Province of New York, 
the date of which is September 29, 1677, but in the Town Records 

(43) 



44 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



there is an Indian deed for the land which antedates this by almost 
two years, the date of which is November 9, 1675. 

All the family records state that he settled at Setauket, or Brook- 
haven in either 1655 or '56. 

Benjamin F. Thompson, the celebrated historian of Long Island, 
was a grandson of Mary, daughter of Kichard Wodhull III., who 
married Jonathan Thompson, of Setauket, Long Island. 

In 1675, some accounts state earlier, Kichard Wodhull I., pur- 
chased from the Indians 10,800 acres of land in Brookhaven, of which 
a portion of this original estate is still in the possession of one of his 
descendants in the eighth generation, the Homestead never having 
been occupied by any other family. 

The following copy of the Indian Deed and the Kelease, are taken 
verbatim from Thompson's "Long Island." 

Says Thompson: — 

"This instrument is not only a very curious document, but is 
otherwise of sufficient importance to be preserved in the history of 
the town." It is in the words following: — 

"Know all men by these pkesents, that I, Gie of Setauket, 
Sachem, now living in Setauket, in the east riding of Yorkshire, with 
all my associates that have been the native proprietors of all the lands 
of Setauket, doth fully and absolutely ratify and confirm unto the 
patentees and their associates of Brookhaven, else Setauket, all those 
parcels of land that have been bought of any of us or our ancestors, 
that is to say, from the west line that runs from Stoney Brook to the 
North Sea, and south to the middle of the island, and so to extend to 
the Wading Eiver or Eed Brook, and to the middle of the island south, 
and so to the North Sea or Sound. I say, I Gie doth for myself and 
my associates, or any that have anything to do with any part or parcel 
of land within the line above mentioned, of all that the inhabitants 
have purchased, doth for ourselves, our heirs and assigns, ratify and 
confirm unto the inhabitants of Setauket, to them, their heirs, execu- 
tors, administrators and assigns, with all the uplands, meadows, timber 
trees, with all harbors, creeks, ponds and fishing, fowling, hunting, 
with all and singular privileges, appurtenances, profits, that any way 
do or shall belong unto the said tract of land above mentioned, to 
have and to hold. 

And what part or parcels of land that is within the aforesaid 
bounds, that is to say, from the west line of Stoney Brook to the east 
line of Wading Eiver, and from thence to the middle of the island 
south, and to the Sound north, that is yet unpurchased, I Gie, 
Setauket Sachem, myself and my co-partners and associates, doth fully 
give unto Mr. Eichard Wodhull whatsoever uplands or meadows that 
we apprehend is unbought by the inhabitants of Setauket, I say for 
some causes and considerations us moving, doth fully and absolutely 
give unto Mr. Eichard Wodhull, sen., all the uplands and meadows, 
timber trees, with all and singular privileges and appurtenances,

him, them, and their heirs forever, to have and to hold without let or

said premises, and every part of them, we do hereunto set our hands

that is to say, both lands and meadows, timber trees, or whatsoever is 
expressed in the above said confirmation and bill of Gie. I, say I, Rich- 
ard Wodhull, for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators and as-

Brookhaven township in Suffolk County was the largest on Long 
Island, being more than three times the size of Kings County. On 
account of this it was divided into different settlements, though 
presumably not until a much later date. 

On the North are Stony Brook, Drowned Meadow, or Port Jeffer- 
son, Old Man's or Mount Sinai, Miller's Place, Rocky Point or Wading 
River, the last being partly in the town of Riverhead. 



46 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



On the South side are Mastic or Moriches, Poosepatuck, Fireplace, 
Bellport and Patchogue, while West are New Village, Coram, Middle- 
town and St. George's Manor. 

In by-gone days Setauket, the original settlement was the largest 
village in that section. Descendants of Richard Wodhull I., have 
lived in all, or most of the above-mentioned places. 

According to B. F. Thompson and Robert Bayles, Richard Wod- 
hull I., became proprietor in two patents of Brookhaven, Suffolk 
County, New York; that of Governor Richard Nicoll's in 1666, and 
that of Governor Thomas Dongan in 1686. 

"In the early period of colonial history, he was associated with all 
the more important transactions of that section of the country." 

(See References to Long Island in Index.) 

His knowledge of surveying would alone, in those primitive days, 
have made him a man of great value, but beyond this he helped make 
the moral and religious sentiment and carry out the law. 

In 1663 he represented Setauket at the General Court of Hartford, 
Connecticut, against the usurpation of the Dutch. In 1666 he was 
one of his Majesty's Justices of the Honorable Court of Assize. 

In 1673 he became Deputy to the Dutch Commissioners in New 
York, and was by them commissioned a Magistrate for Brookhaven. 

According to tradition, he was a Colonial Captain in the King's 
Troops in the year 1685, but in the list of Documents in the office of 
the Secretary of State of New York, relating to Smithtown, Long 
Island, Vol. XXXIII., Page 96, is the following, viz.:— "March 13, 
1685, Richard Wodhull Jr. Captain." 

"In the year 1687, Lord Crewe of Steane or Stene, a cousin of 
Richard Wodhull's is supposed to have sent him the Wodhull Coat-of- 
Arms, a rare and remarkable painting, now in the possession of Rich- 
ard Lawrence Woodhull, of Setauket, Long Island, a lineal descendant 
in the seventh generation." 

This Achievement of eighteen quarterings shows the coat of arms 
of all the heiresses who married in the Wodhull family, from the time 
of Nicholas, Baron de Wahull. (See Frontispiece for Wodhull 
Achievement.) 

This heraldic painting said to be "one of the most valuable historic 
relics in this country," was fast fading under the touch of time but 
was fully restored in 1865. 

The following is a literal copy of the original letter from Lord 
Crewe to his kinsman, Richard Wodhull, and is likewise in possession 
of Richard Lawrence Woodhull, of Setauket. 

"Sr. I was heartily glad to find by yr letter, that it hath pleased 
God to blesse and prosper your family, and that you received the small 
present I sent you some time since wh I thought had been lost. For 
our country news, take this account. My father departed this life Dec. 
12, 1679, and as he lived well, soe he had greate joye at his death, with 
a Longing to leave this world. I have six children, but noe sonne, it

uncle Thomas a yeare before, my uncle Nathaniel is still living. I 
have enclosed the papers you desire. My service to all my Cozens. I 
rest yr loving friend and kinsman/' 

"CEEWE. 

(Superscribed) "Ffor my loving Kinsman, Eichard Wodhull, Esq. 

"Steane, Sep. 5, 1687." 

(See Fac-simile of Crewe Letter.) 

Baron Crewe of Steane married Dorothy, daughter of Sir William 
Foster of Bamborough Castle, Northumberland, Knight. It appears 
from the "Monumenta Anglicana," a collection of English epitaphs, 
by Le Neve, that her death occurred, October 16th, 1715. 

"My uncle Sal" referred to in the above letter meant Salathiel 
Crewe. "Here lyeth the body of Salathiel Crewe Esq. the 4th son 
of Sir Thomas Crewe, late of Steane, in this County, Knt. who died 
ye 18th of April in the year of our Lord 1686, A-E 73." 

(See "Monumenta Anglicana," Vol. 3, Page 161.) 

His tomb is in Hinton Church, Northamptonshire, England. 

The enclosure, or "the papers you desire," mentioned in the letter 
were, it seems highly probable, papers relating to the ancient lineage 
of the Wodhull family. 

In 1846 there was in existence, according to the late Silas Lewis 
Condict, M. D., of New York City, a "Wodhull Genealogy," bearing 
the marks of great antiquity both in the appearance of the paper and 
the style of writing. 

This was loaned to Dr. Condict, by Joseph Howland Woodhull, son 
of Ezra Conkling Woodhull. Mr. Joseph H. Woodhull died unmar- 
ried at Havana, Cuba, in 1850, and his sister Elizabeth Woodhull, 
died recently in Norwich, Connecticut, being the last of her line. 

Fortunately, Dr. Condict made a very careful copy of the paper, 
the title of which runs as follows: — 

"The Originall of the family of the Wodhulls from ye Conquest." 

The final statement of said paper reads thus, "Lawrence Wodhull 
had issue Lawrence who died without issue and Eichard Wodhull. 
Eichard Wodhull had issue Eichard and Nathaniel Wodhull, now 
living in America, on Long Island at Brookhaven." 

(See Genealogical Appendix, Note Jj., for copy of "The Originall 
of the family of the Wodhulls from ye Conquest.") 

Many years ago the Eev. John McDowell, D. D., of Philadelphia, 
writing of the Eev. John Woodhull, D. D., said, "He was descended 



48 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



from a long line of illustrious ancestors. I have seen in the family 
Bible, a list of his ancestors from William the Conqueror." 

(See also "American Ancestry/'' Vol. VII., page 156.) 

There are two interesting old volumes among the family treasures 
contained in the Woodhull homestead at Setauket. The first: 

"Laws of New York from the year 1691, to 1773, inclusive." 

Published according to an Act of the General Assembly. New 
York. Printed by Hugh Gaine, Printer to the King's Most Excellent 
Majesty in the Province of New York. M.DCCLXXLV. 

The first Assembly held in the third year of the Reign of King 
William and Queen Mary. Begun the 9th of April, 1691. 

The second book is: 

"Acts of Assembly passed in the Province of New York from 1691 
to 1725." 

Printed and sold by William Bradford, Printer to the King's 
Most Excellent Majesty for the Province of New York. 

The title page of each book contains a Crown, the Lion and 
Unicorn, also the motto of England. 

In a family paper, once the property of Sarah Woodhull Arms, 
a granddaughter of the Eev. John Woodhull, D. D., among other 
statements, most of which seem well authenticated, is the following 
interesting, traditional item: — 

"On coming to the Throne in June 1830 William 4th offered to 
restore the Title of Baron Wahull to the 'next of kin' in America and 
a Seat in the House of Lords." 

In connection with this it may be remembered that Michael Wod- 
hull, Esq., the last of his line in England, who died in 1816, having 
lost his wife, and being without an heir, willed his fine estate and 
magnificent library to his deceased wife's sister. 

In an address presented at a Family Reunion June 23rd, 1900, the 
late Rev. John Alpheus Woodhull said, "The Woodhull race (almost 
a thousand years old) has outlasted one-half of the Nations of the 
world. It is more than twice as old as the discovery of America by 
Columbus, and goes back across more than one-half the time since the 
Christian Era. Our Flemish Ancestor was born more than five hun- 
dred years before Shakespeare, and our American Ancestor was born 
one hundred and fifty-six years before this free republic." 

In early colonial history the name of Odell, as well as Wodhull 
frequently appears. After a close study of the subject there seems 
little doubt but that the Wodhulls and Odells can claim the same line 
of descent from Walter Flanderensis the first Baron de Wahull. 

Richard Wodhull I., is frequently mentioned in Public Records as 
Richard Odell, but signatures to deeds and other papers seem in- 
variably to have been written Richard Wodhull. The records of Rich- 
ard Odell of Southampton, Long Island, are not to be confused with 
those of Richard Wodhull of Brookhaven or Setauket, Long Island. 

The Odell and Wodhull families in America are entirely separate 
and distinct, although either might have reason to be proud to claim 
kinship with the other.

WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 49 



In looking up English references, time will be lost in searching 
for the Woodhull name, for, except in rare instances, the name is 
written Odell, de Wahull, or de Wahulle and Wodhull. 

Benjamin Thompson, in his "History of Long Island," says, "The 
name was originally written Wodhull and continued to be so spelled 
for many years after the arrival of the family." 

The additional letter is supposed to have been added, changing 
the name from Wodhull to Woodhull, in the fourth generation. 

In accordance with this, the compilers of this Genealogy have used 
the latter spelling after the third generation. 

The Deed, or "Bill of Sale," which follows this sketch is a fac- 
simile of the original document, and as such, will doubtless prove of 
interest to all the descendants of Eichard Wodhull I. 

The exact date of his death is uncertain, it, however, must have 
been after October, 1690, as the Deed is dated the following year. 

During the Eevolution a number of the grave stones in the old 
Presbyterian church-yard at Setauket, were destroyed, among others, 
those of Eichard Wodhull I., and Eichard Wodhull II. 

To-day, there stands a massive granite stone bearing the following 

inscription: —

who restored the tombstone.

NOTE B.— BARRON. 

The Barron family was founded by Ellis Barron, one of the fam- 
ily of Palatine Barrons, of Burnchurch, in the County of Waterford, 
Ireland. 

He was born in Ireland about 1600, and emigrated to America 
about 1640. He was made Freeman in Watertown, Massachusetts, 
June 2, 1641. 

(See "American Family Antiquity.") (See Genealogy, No. 285.) 



NOTE C— BOLTON. 

The Bolton family is of remote antiquity and bears one of the 
earliest British surnames upon record. Fuller in his "Worthies of 
England," mentions the Bolton family as one that "had comfortably 
continued a long time in good repute." Oughtrede de Bolton, Lord 
of Bolton by Bowland, was, according to Dugdale, the lineal repre- 
sentative of the Saxon Earls of Mercia. 

He held the office of bow-bearer and falconer in the Royal Forests 
of Bowland and Gilsland. 

Elias de Bolton living in 1134 was the father of Richard de 
Bolton. 

Robert Bolton, author of the "History of West Chester County," 
and the "History of the Episcopal Church"* in the same County, was a 
grandson of Robert Bolton born in 1757, a soldier in the Revolu- 
tionary War. 

The first of the name in this country was Robert Bolton, born 
in the Parish of St. John's Wales, County York, in 1688, who settled 
in Philadelphia in 1718. He was a grandson of Adam Bolton, of 
Brookhouse, in 1570. 

(See "Bolton Genealogy.") (See Genealogy, No. 408.) 

Arms of the Boltons of Bolton. 

Sable, a falcon, close, argent, beaked, membered, jessed and bell'd. 
or, charged on the breast with a trefoil slipp'd proper. 



NOTE D.— BULL SMITH. 

The ancestor of the "Bull Smith" family of Long Island, was 
Major Richard Smith, 1st, who came from England to New England, 
early in the 17th Century, and later settled on Long Island, being 
the founder of Smithtown. 

It is rather amusing to know that the sobriquet of this family 



258 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



of Smiths arose from the circumstance of an ancestor having trained 

a Bull to harness, using him instead of a horse. 

(See "Antiquities of Long Island," by Gabriel Furman.) 
Edmund Smith, grandson of Richard Smith, 1st, Patentee of 

Smithtown, Long Island, married Susannah Floyd, granddaughter of 

Richard Floyd, 1st, Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island. 

In his Will dated 1734, Edmund Smith, Esq., mentions a daughter 

Margaret, who married Richard Woodhull. 

Richard Smith, 2nd, married Hannah Tooker. Their daughter 

married Nathaniel Wodhull, son of Richard Wodhull II.

NOTE E.— CHESEBROUGH. 

William Chesebrough, the first settler of English lineage in the 
town of Stonington, Connecticut, was born in England in the year 
1594. 

He came to this country when thirty-six years of age, and he, 
with three others, Thomas Stanton, Walter Palmer and Minor were 
the founders of Stonington. 

A monument was erected to their memory in the ancient ceme- 
tery of Wequetequock, in 1899, that being the two hundred and 
fiftieth year of the founding of the first settlement. 

William Chesebrough was elected Deputy to the General Court 
of Connecticut at Hartford in 1653, 1654, 1655 and 1656. He also 
held the offices of Assessor and Commissioner. 

He was a man of strong Christian principles, and he and his wife, 
Anna Chesebrough, were enrolled among the first members of the 
church in Boston, Mass. 

Chesebrough Coat of Arms. 

Gu. three crosses pattee in fess, arg. between as many water 
bougets or. Crest, a demi lion rampant gu. holding between the 
paws a cross pattee or. 

The Motto. — In England is, "Fidei coticula crux." (The cross 
the touchstone of faith.) 

(See "Chesebrough Genealogy," by Anna Chesebrough Wildey.) 

Four prominent American families, the Chesebrough, Maxwell, 
Van Zandt and Woodhull, are closely allied. 

Marion Margaret Woodhull, daughter of Richard Miller Woodhull 
and Marion Margaret Maxwell (daughter of James Horner Maxwell 
and Katherine Van Zandt, who was a daughter of Jacobus Van 
Zandt, the Revolutionary patriot), married Henry Augustus Chese- 
brough. 

(See Genealogy, No. 275.) 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 259 



Katherine Van Zandt had the honor of opening the first Inaugura- 
tion Ball as the partner of General Washington. 

James Horner Maxwell was a son of William Maxwell, founder 
and President of the Bank of New York, of New York City. 



NOTE F.— CONDICT. 

John Cunditt, the first of the Cunditt, Condit or Condict family 
in America, is known to have been in this country as early as the 
year 1678. 

In 1689 and 1691 he was the purchaser of lands "in the bounds 
of the town of Newark/' Essex County, New Jersey. 

This John Cunditt was of Norman descent, he married his first 
wife in Great Britain, his second wife Deborah in America. 

A certain John Conduit Knight, seems to have been a personage 
of considerable importance. "He married Catherine Barton, a niece 
of Sir Isaac Newton, with whom they resided during the lifetime 
of the celebrated Sir Isaac, and afterward inherited his estate; John 
Conduit succeeding Sir Isaac as Master and Warden of the Mint. 

He died in 1730 and his wife in 1737, their monument is in 
Westminster Abbey. Their only daughter and child married a Mr. 
Wallop, eldest son of Lord Lymington." (See "Life of Sir Isaac 
Newton," by David Brewster.) 

Samuel Condit, first grandson of John, who came to America, 
purchased about the year 1720, a large tract of land from the Indians, 
of New Jersey. 

During his lifetime he gave each of his five sons fifty acres of 
land, erecting a house upon each lot, also giving to each son a family 
Bible. 

The Hon. Lewis Condict, M. D., married, October 6, 1798, Martha, 
daughter of the Bev. Nathan Woodhull. 

He was a graduate from the Medical Department of the University 
of Pennsylvania. Sheriff of Morris County, New Jersey, in 1800. 

He also represented his district in Congress from 1811 to 1833, 
except for two terms. He was a prominent member of the State 
Medical Society, and considered one of the best Latin scholars of 
his day. 

(See "Condict Genealogy.") (See Genealogy, No. 156.) 

The Bev. Jonathan Bailey Condict, D. D., married first, July 20, 
1831, Eliza Keturah, daughter of the Bev. Selah Strong Woodhull, 
D. D. 

(See Genealogy, No. 334.) 

He married second, Sarah Strong Woodhull, his deceased wife's 
sister, May 5, 1836.

NOTE G.— COOMBS. 

The Coombs family came from England to America during the 
Colonial period. 

In the church at Stratf ord-on-Avon, rendered famous by the mon- 
ument of the great poet Shakespeare, are tablets in memory of the 
Coombs family. 

The effigy of John Coombe, Esq., an intimate friend of Shake- 
speare, habited in a long gown, with book in hand, lies at full length 
within the historic church. 

The following is a striking epitaph: 

"Here lyeth intered ye body of John Combe Esq. who departed 
this life, ye 10th day of July Anno Domino 1614; bequeathed by 
his last will and testament, to pious and charitable uses these sums 
ensuing annually, to be paid forever, viz — XXS for two sermons to 
be preached in this church; six powndes XIII and 4 pence to buy 
ten gowndes for ten poor people within the borough of Stratford; 
and one hundred powndes to be lent unto 15 poor tradesmen of ye 
same borough from 3 years to 3 years changing these ptius every 
third year at the rate of flftie shillings per annum; ye which in- 
crease be appoynted to be distributed towards ye relief of ye alms 
people therein." Then follows in Latin "Virtus post funeral vivit." 

In the same church are various other inscriptions relating to the 
family. Upon one monument are two busts in white marble — one 
of Eichard Combe, Esq., and the other of Judith Combe his intended 
wife with the following, 

"Here lyeth the body of Judith Combe, daughter of William 
Combe Esq., of Old Stratford, in ye County of Warwick who was 
to have been married unto Eichard Combe of Hewsted, in the County 
of Hareford, Esq., had not death prevented it, by depriving her of 
life, to ye extreme grief and sorrow of both their friends; but more 
especially of ye said Eichard Combe, who in testimony of his un- 
fained love, hath erected this monument for perpetuating her pious 
memory. She took her last leave of life ye 17th day of August 
1649, in ye arms of him who most entirely loved and was beloved 
of her, even to ye very death." 

Philip Coombs was the first of the family to arrive in America. 
He settled in Newburyport, Mass. The exact date of his coming is 
not known, but the first date of record is March 12, 1739, which is 
the date of the will of William Johnson, of ISTewburyport, in which 
he leaves legacies to his daughter Lydia, the wife of Philip Coombs. 

During the French War in 1756, Philip Coombs with his son, and 
other men from Newburyport, went to build boats on Lake Ontario 
for the colonial government, and at the surrender of Fort Oswego 
the whole party were taken prisoners and carried to France where 
they were imprisoned at Dijon. Having formerly dwelt on the Island 
of Guernsey, Philip Coombs was familiar with the French language 
and customs, which proved of great use to him at this time. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 261 



Falling ill, he died in the hospital at Dijon, France, January 22, 
1757. 

He was remarkable for his piety, which was of the stern unbend- 
ing character that generally obtained in New England at that period, 
and also for his liberality. He was one of the founders of the Presby- 
terian church in Newburyport. 

At the opening of the Revolutionary War, William Coombs, the 
son of Philip Coombs, was possessed of much influence and ample 
means, he at once and ardently entered into the cause of freedom, 
ready with his fortune or his life to serve in the patriotic work. 

In 1775, he bought munitions of war from the French Island of 
Guadaloupe, at the risk of his life and property and presented the 
whole cargo to the authorities at Newburyport asking no recompense. 

He afterward served on the Committee of Safety and Correspond- 
ence, which in those times assumed and exercised some of the power 
of government, and was continually at the post of duty until regular 
authority was restored. 

"His residence probably approached nearer the style of an old 
English gentleman's estate than any other in town, and he himself 
was the best representative of that class of persons. 

"He was the gentleman of Newburyport. By him were brought 
down the fashions of the colonial and revolutionary periods to the 
latest date." William Coombs died in 1814, aged 78 years. (See 
"Memorabilia," published by the Newburyport Herald 1856-57.) 

Philip Coombs, the son of William Coombs, made an exploration 
of the Penobscot country and foreseeing its importance left Newbury- 
port and settled on the banks of the Penobscot Eiver, becoming one 
of the founders of the City of Bangor, Me. 

Philip Coombs' son, Philip Henry Coombs, of Bangor, married 
Eliza Boardman, of Newburyport. 

Philip Henry Coombs' son is Philip Coombs of Bangor, who 
married Sarah Woodhull. 

(See Genealogy, No. 381.) 

The Coombs Coat-of-Arms: "A Dexter hand and arm, embowered 
in armor holding a broken tilting spear." 



NOTE H.— DU BOIS. 

Louis Du Bois, usually called Louis the Walloon, was born in 
Wicres, near Lille, in French Flanders, October 27, 1626. The farm 
of his father Chretien Du Bois, is still pointed out. 

Chretien Du Bois married Catherine, daughter of Matthieu Blan- 
con, of Artois, France. 

Numerous descendants of Louis Du Bois, Patentee of New Paltz, 
settled throughout New York State, and also in Monmouth County, 
New Jersey. 



262 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



The Eev. Benjamin Du Bo-is, the Revolutionary patriot, is of this 
line. Isaac Du Bois served as a private in Captain Abraham Deyo's 
Company, in the Third Ulster County Eegiment. 

Major Zachary Du Bois was a prisoner of war of the British 
for some time, and his brother Lewis Du Bois was Colonel of the 5th 
Continental Regiment in 1776, having previously made a fine record 
in the Regiment of Colonel Jesse Woodhull. 

An interesting old Dutch Bible now in the possession of General 
Nathaniel Du Bois, of Newburgh, New York, was printed in 1634. 
It weighs fourteen pounds, and is covered with leather, each corner 
having a brass knob a quarter of an inch thick. 

(See "History of New Paltz and its People/' by Ralph Le Fevre.) 

Jesse Woodhull, of Blooming Grove, Colonel of the Orange County 
Militia, married Hester Du Bois, of New Paltz, New York. 

Their descendants have heretofore supposed this Hester to have 
been the daughter of Captain Louis Du Bois. 

According to Mr. Ralph Le Fevre, author of the "History of New 
Paltz and its People," Hester, was the daughter of Nathaniel Du Bois, 
son of Louis Du Bois, Jr., and Rachel Hasbrouck (daughter of 
Abraham Hasbrouck and Maria Deyo). 

Nathaniel Du Bois located at Blooming Grove, now Salisbury 
Mills, Orange County. He married in the year 1726, Gertrude 
Bruyn. 

Their daughter Hester was the twin of Zachary, who became a 
Major in the Revolution. 

She married in the year 1753, Colonel Jesse Woodhull. 

They had four sons and three daughters.

NOTE K.— FORBES. 

The Forbes family is Scotch and very ancient, its origin being too 
remote to be now known. The most reliable tradition says, the first 
progenitor of the family was a lord in Ireland, son of Ochonocher, 
who came to Scotland to serve the King of Scotland in his wars, 
and for this received the Castle of Urquhart. 

His son Ochonocher, Lord of Logie, killed a great boar and the 
name became gradually Foboar, Forbrst, Forbush, to Forbes. 

It was a great and powerful family as far back as the 14th 
Century, for "from 1371, till Howdonne, in the year 1513, the great 
Lord Forbes had the whole guiding of his majesties affairs, * * * 
betwixt the cairne of Mounte, and Bush of Kaitress, as the several 
sealls and signets and tablets of the severale Kings and queens do 
declare, which are yet extant." 

So says an old chronicler of the family in 1580, and after enumer- 
ating the high offices held by the family, he adds, "So that it seems 
they have been verre great." 

The Forbes were Highlanders, of Aberdeen, Eoyalists, and espous- 
ing the cause of Charles Stuart; of the old family places, Culloden is 
still a residence of one branch of the family. 

The first Forbes in this country was Daniel Forbes, of Cam- 
bridge, Mass., who was born in Scotland about 1620 and married in 
Cambridge, Mass., in 1660. 

From this Daniel (1st), have descended a numerous connection. 
Many of the Forbes were in the Indian and Revolutionary Wars, and 
have occupied positions of trust and honor, both in Colonial and 
later times. 

Mrs. Sarah Forbes Woodhull was the great great great grand- 
daughter of Daniel (1st), and the daughter of William Forbes of 
Bangor, Me., who when seventeen years of age, was one of fourteen 
men who enlisted from Brookfield, Mass., in the call issued January 
22, 1780, to reinforce the Continental Army in Rhode Island. 

He was stationed later at West Point, and was one of a party sent 
in pursuit of Arnold. Had they started a little earlier they might 
nave captured him, as they distinctly saw the traitor stepping over the 
side of the British barge. 

Mrs. WoodhulPs home for twenty-five years, after marrying the 
Rev. Richard Woodhull, was in Thomaston, Me., and while residing 
there she became an intimate friend of two of the daughters of 
General Knox, of the Revolutionary War, whose home was there. 

Mrs. Woodhull was accomplished and brilliant, and of marked 
literary ability, her poems being particularly beautiful. 

(See Genealogy, No. 178.) 

The Forbes Coat of Arms: Azure, three boars' heads, couped, or., 
Supporters — Two greyhounds, or., couped gu. 

Crest: A Stag's head, attired ppr. 

Motto: Grace me guide.

NOTE L.— FORDHAM. 

The Fordham family is one of the oldest on Long Island. The 
Rev. Robert Fordham came from England to America in the year 
1641. He landed in Massachusetts, but a short time later settled at 
Hempstead, Long Island, his name being first mentioned in Keith's 
patent of that town. 

The Fordhams were people of considerable estate and of unusual 
learning for those early days. The Rev. Robert Fordham was the 
second pastor of the Southampton Presbyterian Church. It is said 
that no generation has been without a preacher from that time to the 
present. 

The Rev. Jonah Fordham, son of the Rev. Robert Fordham and 
Elizabeth Benning, ("a member of the church at Milford, Connecti- 
cut,") was born about the year 1633. He was graduated from Har- 
vard, B. A., in 1658, and settled at Hempstead, Long Island, in 1663. 

B. F. Thompson says: "He was so much esteemed by the people 
that in 1663 the town voted that he should have allotments with the 
other inhabitants and also a 200 pound estate, if he pleased, which 
according to the rule of valuation then adopted, amounted to 500 
acres, with woodland in proportion." His father having died in 1674, 
he "returned to Southampton, * * * and labored in the ministry 
there, probably till the arrival of the Rev. Mr. (Joseph) Taylor, in 
1680." 

" 'Sept. 26, 1687/ " continued Thompson, apparently quoting the 
records of Brookhaven, " 'it was ordered by a major part of the town, 
that Mr. Jonah Fordham of Southampton, be sent unto, desiring him 
to officiate in the work of the ministry in this town/ " but he declined 
the invitation, declining a settlement on account of his health, but 
remained here six years, when he returned to Southampton where he 
died July 17, 1696, aged 63 years. 

Temperance Fordham, who married Richard Wodhull II., was a 
daughter of the Rev. Jonah Fordham, granddaughter of the Rev. 
Robert Fordham, and sister of the Rev. Josiah Fordham. 

There is a question whether or not Temperance did not first marry 
a Topping. 

In Southampton Records, p. 262, occurs the following: 

"Richard Wodhull of Brookhaven was marryed with Temperance 
Topping of Southampton upon ye 20 of Nov. 1684."

NOTE M.— FOSTER. 

The genealogy of the Foster family is traceable in America, Eng- 
land, France, and the Low Countries, for some centuries. 

Its progenitor was Anacher, who held the office of Grand Forester 
of Flanders, in the early part of the ninth century A. D., and whose 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 267 

immediate descendants intermarried with the royal houses and noble 
families of Flanders, France and England. 

One of them, Sir Richard Forester, a brother-in-law of William the 
Conqueror, was with him in his invasion of England, and was 
knighted for bravery on the field of Hastings (1066), and became the 
founder of the English family of Forester or Foster. 

Eighteen generations flourished from his time until the coming of 
the emigrant ancestor, Christopher Foster to this country. He was 
born in England in 1603, and with his wife Frances, came to America 
in 1635. 

He was made freeman at Boston in 1637, sixty acres of land being 
allotted to him. From Boston he removed to Long Island. 

The Fosters have been residents of Suffolk County for two hun- 
dred and fifty years. (See "History of Long Island," Ross & Pelle- 
treait).

NOTE N.— FROST. 

"William Frost of Matinecock, Long Island, was awarded a new 
purchaser's accommodation at Setauket, Brookhaven, New York, Sep- 
tember 26, 1672." (See "American Ancestry," Vol. IX., p. 23.) 

In the early colonial days two Frost brothers came from Wales 
and settled upon Long Island; later, Joseph Frost removed to Tus- 
cumbia, Alabama. 

His son, Thomas Frost married Crissy, the daughter of Reuben 
Price, who fought in the Revolution, and settled in Texas. 

Colonel Thomas Clayborne Frost was an early settler in San An- 
tonio and for thirty-five years was closely identified with the business 
interests in that city and vicinity. 

He was born December 31, 1833, and was graduated from Irving 
College, Tennessee, in 1853, taking first honors as well as being 
awarded the Latin Professorship the same year. 

In 1854 he was made Professor of Latin, in Austin College, Texas, 
and at this time commenced the study of law with Judge Yoakum, 
and Governor Sam Houston. 

In the beginning of the Civil War, he became Colonel of the First 
Texas Mounted Rifles, which position he filled until the close of the 
war. 

He was a man of influence and of marked ability, as well as of 
affluence. He was President of the Frost National Bank of San An- 
tonio, and a large property holder in Southwest Texas. His name has 
always stood for rare business ability and strict integrity. 

He died in November, 1903. 



268 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



His first wife, Bertie Eastland Roberts, whom he married in the 
year 1858, and who died in the year 1873, was the mother of Mrs. 
Josiah Townsend Woodhull, of San Antonio, Texas. 

(See Genealogy, No. 471.) 

He married second, December 31, 1877, Josephine Houston, by 
whom he had three sons: Thomas C. Frost, Jr., Joseph H. Frost and 
John Frost. 

NOTE 0.— HELME. 

Thomas Helme of the Kirkehouse in Goosnargh, gent. 

"The Kirkhouse or Church house was one of the oldest buildings 
in Goosnargh/' 

(See "History of Goosnargh, in County of Lancaster," by H. Fish- 
wick.) 

Thomas Helme, was one of the Patentees of Brookhaven, Long 
Island, in 1689, and with Richard Wodhull (I.), was commissioned to 
lay out Little Neck in 1687. 

The name of William Helme is on the Rolls of Brookhaven Com- 
pany, "in ye Suffolk Regiment, Anno. Dom. 1715, of Henry Smith's 
Company." John and Nathaniel Wodhull, brothers of his wife 
Dorothy, were in the same Company. 

(See Genealogy, No. 11.) 



NOTE P.— HEWITT. 

The Hewitt family is closely allied to the Pilgrim Fathers of 
"Mayflower" fame. Joseph Hewitt, an early Colonial settler, married 
Mary, daughter of Samuel Chesebrough and Priscilla Alden. 

Joseph Hewitt, born May 2, 1731, married Jane Babcock. Nathan- 
iel Hewitt, born in the year 1763, married Sarah Avery. Their son 
Henry Hewitt, born in the year 1795, married Althea Brush. Their 
son Charles Nathaniel Hewitt, M. D., born in the year 1835, married 
Helen Hawley. He was Surgeon of the 50th New York Volunteer 
Engineers and saw active service through the entire Civil War. Later, 
he resumed the practice of medicine in Redwood, Minnesota, and was 
for twenty years President of the State Board of Health. 

His daughter, Charlotte Althea Hewitt married James Clifford 
Woodhull. 

(See Genealogy, No. 809.) 



NOTE Q.— HOPKINS. 

The earliest known ancestor of the Hopkins family was Stephen 
Hopkins, a native of England, probably a resident of Coventry. 

In company with Elder Brewster he joined the party of colonists 
led by Gates and Somers which sailed for Virginia in 1609. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 269 

On this voyage he served as "lay reader," or assistant chaplain. 
The vessel was shipwrecked off Bermuda, an island hitherto undis- 
covered, and for six months the colonists were forced to live in 
isolation. 

Stephen Hopkins claimed that the shipwreck released all from 
their contract to the Virginia Company. A summary court-martial 
convicted him of treason and sentenced him to death. Only the inter- 
vention of those whose favor he had won saved his life. Sir George 
Somers, the Admiral and Chaplain, besought his pardon. But not 
until the hour of execution had nearly arrived did Sir Thomas Gates 
yield and grant his release. 

By 1612, Stephen was again in England, still a non-conformist. 
In 1620 he joined in England the Pilgrims, who had returned from 
Leyden, and in that year sailed with them in the "Mayflower," accom- 
panied by his wife, three children and two servants. On the sea 
voyage his little boy, Oceanus, was born; but died the following 
February. 

Stephen Hopkins was the fourteenth signer of the "Mayflower 
Compact," by which agreement the forty-one subscribers pledged sup- 
port and protection to each other in the colony they were about to 
found in the New World. 

When the Pilgrims first came ashore Captain Miles Standish was 
sent out with sixteen men to examine the country. William Bradford, 
Stephen Hopkins and Edward Tilley were joined to this band for 
counsel and advice. 

Stephen Hopkins was later associated with Winslow on an em- 
bassy to Massasoit. He was for three years on the Governor's Council 
and was a volunteer in the war against the Pequod Indians. 

Stephen Hopkins, who bore the honorable title of "Mr." was 
awarded "six acres on the south side of. the brook." No other had so 
much land except William Brewster. "He also owned the first horse 
in the colony and was part owner of the first boat." 

The grandson of Stephen, William Hopkins, moved from Massa- 
chusetts and settled on Shelter Island, N. Y. His son Samuel moved 
to Long Island, settling in 1757, at Old Maris, since changed to Miller 
Place. 

Here he purchased between six and seven hundred acres of land. 
On this homestead three more generations bearing the same name 
have lived. 

Samuel Judson Hopkins, fourth generation, still resides on the 
farm purchased by his ancestor 150 years ago. 

Stephen Hopkins, Governor of Rhode Island, and one of the 
Signers of the Declaration of Independence, is of this family. 

It may be noted here that Ex- Vice-President Levi P. Morton 
claims Stephen Hopkins as his fifth great-grandfather by collateral 
descent. 

It is interesting to note that the first naval effort of the Revolution 
was made in Philadelphia. 



270 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



Commander Esek Hopkins (of this family), stepped into his barge 
at Walnut Street wharf in January. 1776, to take command of a 
squadron of eight cruisers, and made his way to his flagship, the 
"Alfred/* 

As he reached the deck Lieutenant John Paul Jones, afterwards 
famous in history, unfurled a yellow silk flag bearing the device of a 
pine tree and a rattlesnake with a motto "Don't tread on me" and 
this was the first flag of the American Navy. 

The Arms of the Coventry house of Hopkins are as follows: Sa. 
on a chev. betw. three pistols or, as many roses gu. 

Crest: — A tower per bend indented ar. and gu. flames issuing from 
the top and windows ppr. 

The motto above the crest, Interprimos (among the first), shows 
that the Hopkins family were placed in the first rank of the Com- 
moners of England, or what was known as the untitled nobility. 

The motto under the shield, "Ant suavitate aut vi, v translates 
"Either by courtesy or main force. " 

In some copies of the Arms the above mentioned mottoes are 
replaced by a third: "Pietas est Pax."'"

NOTE P.— HOWELL. 

"William Howell, of Wedon, in the County of Bucks, England, 
married first Maud, who died, and left children; John the elder 
and John the younger. He married second, Anne Hampton; and 
had a son Henry. He also had other children, Jacob, and Eachel, 
wife of the Pev. Thomas Willis. 

His will dated November 30, 1557, directed his body to be buried 
in the parish church of Wingrave, in the Chancel before the high 
Altar. Gives his wife Anne his lands in Walton and Hamme for 
her life: at her death they are to go to Henry. Gives his eldest son 
John his lands in Marsh Gibbon at his death, in default of issue to 
his son Jacob. He also gave each of his daughters 20 pounds, and 
left a legacy for bells for the Hardwich church. 

He died in 155?, and his son John died without issue in 1570. 
According to the parish register of Marsh Gibbon, "Henry Howell, 
Gent, was hurried ye 22nd day of July 1625.'* 

Edward Howell, the son of Henry Howell, of Marsh Gibbon, wa- 
the first of the family to come to America. 

Erom the parish register in Marsh Gibbon we learn that he wa.~ 
baptized the 22nd of July, 1584. 

He disposed of considera- states in Bucks County, England, 
in 1639, among which was the Manor of Westbury, purchased by 
his grandfather, William Howell, in 1536. He came to Boston in 
in 1639 with his familv. and was made freeman March 14. 1639. He 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 271 



moved to Lynn, where he had a grant of 500 acres. He seems to 
have been the leader of the new settlement projected on Long Island 
in the winter of 1639-40, as the compact, or agreement of terms, as 
well as the laws adopted by the first settlers were in his handwriting, 
and to the last year of his life he was a magistrate and member of 
the Colonial legislature at Hartford. 

The parish register in Marsh Gibbon states, that Frances, wife 
of Edward Howell, Gent, was buried the 2nd of July, 1630. He 

afterward married Eleanor . His son Eichard, baptized 1629, 

married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Halsey (the first of the name 
in America). His son Hezekiah, born 1677; married Phoebe, daughter 
of Thomas Halsey, (2nd). He was known as Lieutenant Hezekiah 
Halsey Howell. 

His son Hezekiah (was known as Hezekiah (1st), being the first 
to settle at Blooming Grove, New York) was born May 6th, 1709; 
married Susanna, daughter of Job Sayre. Their son Hezekiah (2nd, 
in the town of Blooming Grove), born September 13, 1741; married 
Juliana Woodhull, whose daughter Abigail married Captain Eben- 
ezer Woodhull.

NOTE S.— JONES. 

The family of Captain Thomas Jones, of Long Island, the first 
ancestor of the name in the United States, was undoubtedly of Welsh 
origin. Characteristics of that race are discernible in most all mem- 
bers of the family in America. 

The first settlers of this country were often neglectful in pre- 
serving the dates of family records from the Mother country, but 
enough has come down through tradition and heirlooms to prove 
unquestionably that he was of gentle birth and breeding. 

His grandson, the Hon. Thomas Jones, Justice of the Supreme 
Court of the Province of New York, and Thompson's History of 
Long Island, say "he fought in the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 
on the side of the House of Stuart," then struggling to maintain 
the Throne of England. 

After the defeat of James II., and his flight into France, many 
of his officers and followers sought refuge in the New World, and 
Thomas Jones came to the Island of Jamaica. 

The Stuart sovereigns (with all their faults,) never forgot their 
friends and followers and, "he was granted a commission from the 
King to cruise against Spanish property on the High Seas." 

The final overthrow of the House of Stuart and the accession of 
William and Mary rendered this commission void, and he came at 
once to Ehode Island in 1692. Here, he married a daughter of 



272 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



Thomas Townsend, Esq., and received from his father-in-law a deed 
for a valuable tract of land on the South side of Long Island. 

Here he came to live, and built the first brick house on that part 
of the Island, which stood for over a hundred and forty years. In 
1837, it was removed to make way for the mansion built by the Hon. 
David S. Jones. 

In 1706 he was commissioned High Sheriff of Queens County, 
he was also Major of Queens Co. Regiment, and was appointed by 
Lord Cornbury, Sanger of Nassau, the legal name of Long Island at 
that period. 

He died in 1713, leaving three sons and four daughters, and is 
buried in the family grave-yard at Massapequa, Long Island. 

The inscription on his tombstone, written by himself, is as fol- 
lows: 

"From distant lands, to this Wild Waste he came, 
This seat he choose, and here he fixed his name 
Long may his sons this peaceful, spot enjoy, 
And no ill-fate their off-spring e'er annoy." 

From this gentleman are descended the families of Jones and 
Floyd-Jones, which have been distinguished for the celebrity of four 
generations at the bar, and on the bench, of the Colony, City and 
State of New York, for a period of a century and a half. 

The late Walter R. Jones, of Cold Spring, Long Island, was the 
founder in 1840, of the Atlantic Mutual Marine Insurance Company 
of New York City. His untiring industry, high character and honor, 
raised this Association to the highest rank, and it is to-day the 
greatest Marine Insurance Company in the world. 

In the family of Oliver Livingston Jones, Esq., of Cold Spring, 
is still preserved a china punch bowl, upon which are inscribed these 
words: 

"Heroick Britons Boldly Strike, 
Renown of old Maintain, 
Your Ancient Fathers when alive 
Oft Humbled France & Spain." 

(See Genealogy, No. 246.) (See Genealogy, No. 468.) 



NOTE T.— KILBOURN. 

There is abundant proof that the family name of Kilburn or 
Kilbourn is derived from the Town of Kilburn, in the North Riding 
of Yorkshire, England. 

It is a matter of history that the Kilburns were originally in this 
county, from whence they went into Cambridgeshire and Essex. 

In 1233 A. D., Wiliam De Kilbourne was Lord of the Manor of 
Kilbourne, Yorkshire. 

The following is from the "Rolls of Scotland" preserved in the 
Tower of London, and Westminster Abbey, "A. D. 1336, John De 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 273 

Kylburn is appointed Chief Commissary of the Works in the camp 
occupied by the King of England and Scotland/' 

Two years later (1338) John Kilborn, probably the same person, 
is referred to in the "Eolls," as "Governor of the Works in the Eoyal 
Camp in Scotland." 

The common ancestor of all the Kilbourn, Kilbourne or Kilburn 
families in the Western Continent was born at Wood Ditton in the 
County of Cambridge, A. D. 1578. 

(See "Kilbourne Genealogy.") 

Aaron Kilburn married Hannah, daughter of Benjamin Wood- 
hull, his brother Timothy married Clement or Clementine, another 
daughter of Benjamin Woodhull. 

This Benjamin Woodhull is, the progenitor of what is called the 
"Canadian Line" of Woodhulls, as he with the Kilburns having been 
driven out of Northwestern New York by the depredations of the 
Indians, settled about the year 1795 in Delaware, Middlesex County, 
Canada. 

(See Genealogy, No. 113.) (See Genealogy, No. 115.) 



NOTE XL— LA WHENCE. 

The Lawrence family has an ancient and distinguished pedigree: 
Eobert Lawrence an intrepid Crusader was with Eichard Cceur de 
Lion in the Holy Land. 

It was this brave Knight who at the beleaguerment of St. John 
D'Acre 1191 A. D., first planted the banner of the Cross on the 
battlements of the city. He was made Sir Eobert Lawrence of Ash- 
ton Hall, Lincolnshire, England. From his time down, the family 
records are complete. 

This family is closely allied to the ambitious Dudley, to the Earl 
of Warwick, to the brilliant Leicester, and to Sir Philip Sydney. 

Sir James Lawrence married Matilda Washington, sister of the 
direct ancestor of the first President of the Eepublic. 

The alliance with the Woodhull family was "another union of 
landed proprietors, which strengthened the powerful Newtown branch 
of the Lawrence family." 

(See Eiker's "Annals of Newtown," and Thompsons "History of 
Long Island.") 

Captain James Lawrence was the intrepid naval hero of the Chesa- 
peake. It was in the battle of June 1, 1813, that Captain Lawrence, 
when dying of a mortal wound, gave his famous order, "Tell the men 
to fire faster, and not give up the ship."

HULL TO THE NEW YORK CONVENTION AT HARLEM. 

Jamaica, August 28th, 1776. 

I must again let you know my situation. I have about 70 men 
and about 20 of the troop, which is all the force I have or can expect, 
and I am daily growing less in number. The people are so alarmed 
in Suffolk, that they will not any more of them march; and as to 
Cols. Smith and Remsen, they cannot join me, for the communication 
is cut off between us. I have sent about 1100 cattle to the great 
fields on the plains, yesterday. About 300 more have gone this 
morning to the same place, and I have ordered a guard of an officer 
and seven privates. They can get no water in those fields. My men 
and horses are worn out with fatigue. The cattle are not all gone 
off toward Hempstead. I ordered them off yesterday; but they were 
not able to take them along. I think the cattle are in as much 
danger on the north side as on the south side; and have ordered 
the inhabitants to remove them, if you cannot send me an immediate 
reinforcement.

NOTE W.— LETTER FROM GENERAL WASHINGTON TO 
ABRAHAM YATES, NEW YORK CONVENTION. 

Long Island, Aug. 28th, 1776. 

Sir: — I was just now honored with your favor of this date, with 
General WoodhulPs letter, and should esteem myself happy, were it 
in my power to afford the assistance required, but the enemy having 
landed a considerable part of their force, here, and at the same time 
may have reserved some to attack New York, it is the opinion, not 
only of myself, but of all my general officers I have had an oppor- 
tunity of consulting with, that the men we have are not more than 
competent to the defence of those lines, and the several posts which 
must be defended. This reason, and this alone, prevents my com- 
plying with your request, I shall beg leave to mention in confidence, 
that a few days ago, upon the enemy's first landing here, I wrote 
to Governor Trumbull, recommending him to throw over a body of 
1000 men on the Island to annoy the enemy in their rear, if the 
state of the colony would admit of it. Whether it will be done, I 
cannot determine. That colony having furnished a large proportion 
of men, I was, and still am, doubtful whether it could be done. 
If it could, I am satisfied it will, from the zeal and readiness 
they have ever shown to give every possible succor. I am hopeful 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 275 

they Avill be in a condition to do it; and if they are, those troops, 
I doubt not, will be ready and willing to give General Woodhull 
any assistance he may want. 

But cannot the militia effect what he wishes to do? They, I 
believe, must be depended on in the present instance for relief. 

I have the honor to be, in great haste, 

GEORGE WASHINGTON.

NOTE X.— LETTERS FROM CAMP WRITTEN BY THE 
REV. JOHN WOODHULL, CHAPLAIN 7th BATTALION 
PENNSYLVANIA. 

Wednesday 11 o Clock at Night 1776. 
Newakk, Aug. 27 

My Deak Sally: — The solemn Day is come at last, — Long Island 
is made a field of Blood — now the cannon & small arms make a con- 
tinued roar, even at this time of Night: Day before yesterday the 
Battle began, and with some intermission has continued till now, yea 
now is roaring in my ears and God only knows when it will end. 

Yesterday morning it was very hot, as yet we have no account 
which may be fully depended on, only that in general that Howe has 
landed with most of his men upon Long Island. Small parties en- 
gaged till yesterday morning, when they made an attack upon us, they 
were beat back three times, the last time our People pursued them too 
far, when a strong reinforcement of the Enemy endeavored to cut off 
our retreat and did us a good deal of damage, tis reported that Gen- 
eral Sullivan and Stirling are missing. Tis also said we have made 
great havoc amongst them — but I can tell but very little for certainty, 
as yet, except that there is a mighty Battle which is continuing — May 
a good God grant that it end in our favor and for the glory of his 
Name! Goodnight! 

Thursday morning: The firing ceased a little before 12 o Clock 
last night, — have heard only a few guns this morning; when I get 
particulars shall write. 



Bakgin, Thursday Evening. 

The great firing yesterday and last night it seems was made only 
by Parties, not a general engagement, in which we only lost one Man, 
how many fell the Day before is uncertain, some say 500 of ours are 
missing — our People have lost no ground but are in high spirits, can 
add no more as am in haste — My Love to you and all. 

JOHN WOODHULL. 

N. B. — Expect to be here sometime.

Friday, Bergen, Aug. 30th, 1776. 

My dear Sally: — Thro' divine goodness I am very well as are our 
Congregation in general that are here. Adam Woods has the ague. 
General Washington has thought proper to draw his men from Long- 
Island, this was done last night. 

The enemy are now firing upon New York, from Long Island; 
our men here are drawing up to be in readiness, in case we are 
needed. 

How many are lost upon the Island is yet uncertain, some say we 
have 700 missing and that we have killed twice as many of the enemy, 
tho I believe it is but guess work as yet — 

Generals Sullivan and Stirling who are missing are said to be 
prisoners, it is also said General Grant on the other side is killed, they 
talk of another General of theirs Killed. 

It is reported that Col. Atly is wounded and a prisoner. Think it 
likely that our People will burn New York, and retreat into the chain 
of Forts which are above it — when that is done am in hopes our 
Enemies will get no farther. Poor Long Island! Know not what will 
become of my Eolations there. May God help them. They are left 
to the mercy of our Cruel Enemy. 

Our men are in high spirits and I trust we shall, thro' ye help of 
God soon break the power of our Foes. 

My Love to the Girls, my little son, and the Neighbors. Eemem- 
ber me to Elsy and the boys — and accept yourself the best affections 

of your

NOTE Y.— LONGSTRETH. 

The grandfather of Hannah Longstreth, Benjamin Dennis, came 
from England about 1760. 

He married Hannah Little, of Shrewsbury, New Jersey, and 
although a Quaker, such was his love for his adopted country, 
he entered the service of the army as Captain in the First Com- 
pany of Third Battalion of the Militia of Monmouth County, New 
Jersey. 

He was killed about the close of the Revolution; near what is now 
called Farmingdale, New Jersey. 

The original Commission issued to Captain Dennis, July 17, 1776, 
is in the possession of his great-grandson, Lambert Woodhull, of 
Dayton, Ohio.

NOTE Aa.— MILLER. 

One of the first settlers of Easthampton, Long Island, was John 
Miller, of Maidstone, County Kent, England. His name is on the 
Town Records as a Town Trustee in 1659. 

Andrew Miller, his son, settled Miller's Place, Long Island, which 
took from him its name. The settlement dating from the year 1671. 

Miller's Place located upon a level plain at some fifty feet above 
tide water, is said to be one of the most beautiful villages on the North 
side of Long Island. Numerous descendants of John Miller the 
pioneer colonist, are residents of Long Island to-day. 

Richard Miller, supposed to be a son of Andrew, married Dorothy, 
daughter of Nathaniel Wodhull, of Setauket, Long Island. Their 
daughter Sarah married her cousin, Richard Woodhull.

He was elected a member of the Continental Congress, March 6, 
1778, but could not be spared from the State to take his seat. He con- 
tinued in active service through 1779, and was made Quartermaster 
General of the New Jersey force in 1780 — a position of great responsi- 
bility and labor. 

He was a delegate to the Convention which framed the State Con- 
stitution, of which he was the last survivor. He was also a member 
of the House of Assembly, 1800-1801. 

During his active life he was a consistent member of the Presby- 
terian Church, and for fifty years an elder therein. 

He died March 3, 1833, in his eighty-eighth year. 

His daughter, Gertrude Neilson, was the wife of the Rev. George 
Spofford Woodhull.

NOTE Cc— NICOLL. 

The Nicoll family is descended from John Nicoll, of Islip, North- 
amptonshire, England, who died in the year 1467. 

The Coat-of-Arms of the family was displayed on the windows of 
the Church of St. Nicholas, at Islip, where John Nicoll was buried. 

A curious fact is noted in the family history of "The Descendants 
of John Nicoll of Islip, England/' viz:— William Nicoll, son of John 
of Islip, married for his second wife, Mary Woodhull, (the proper 
spelling was Wodhull,) daughter of Lawrence Woodhull, "gentleman' 7 
of Thenford, Northamptonshire. 

A descendant in America, of Lawrence Woodhull, Elizabeth, 
daughter of General Nathaniel Woodhull and Kuth Floyd, married 
Henry Nicoll, the fifth great-grandson of the above mentioned William 
Nicoll of Islip. 

(See "The Descendants of John Nicoll of Islip, England.") 

Matthias Nicoll was Mayor of New York in 1671, and was a 
member of the first General Assembly of the Colony of New York in 
1683. 

His son William, married Anne, daughter of Jeremias Van Eensse- 
laer. His daughter Margaret married Colonel Eichard Floyd. 

Henry Nicoll, who married Elizabeth Woodhull, was graduated 
from King's College (now Columbia University), in 1774.

NOTE Dd.— PELLETREAU. 

The ancestors of the Pelletreau family were Huguenots, who upon 
the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, fled from France and sought 
safety and religious freedom in a foreign clime. 

The first of the family in America were Jean Pelletreau and his 
wife Magdalen a, also their nephews, Jean and Elie, the latter having 
two sons: Jean and Elie (whose names were soon Anglicised into John 
and Elias). 

These were direct descendants from an ancestor who was physician 
to Admiral Coligny, and like his illustrious patron perished in the 
massacre of Saint Bartholomew, August 24, 1572. King Charles IX. 
granted him a coat of arms, July 17, 1571. 

The following is a translation of the description: "Azure, upon a 
column in pale or, encircled with a serpent proper, and bordered on 
the dexter and sinister sides by a martlet, or; crest, a helmet." 

Jean (I.), was naturalized in New York, September 22, 1687, and 
died in 1700. His wife Magdalena died in 1702, without children. 

Jean (II.), died in 1703, childless. He and his brother Elie were 
naturalized July 10, 1696. The native place of this family was the 
village of Arces, in what is now the Department of Charente 
Inferieure. 

They were all members of the French Church in New York, and 
in their wills left funds toward the support of its poor. Their names 
are found in connection with the troubles in that church, as in favor 
of the Rev. Lewis Row. (See "Documentary History of New York," 
Vol. III.) 

Elie Pelletreau died in 1730, leaving sons Elias, Paul, Francis, 
John and Benjamin and a daughter Magdalena. Elias Smith Pelle- 
treau, great-great-grandson of Elie Pelletreau, who died in 1730, mar- 
ried Hannah Woodhull Smith, only child of Oliver Smith, of 
Moriches, by his first wife, Hannah Woodhull, daughter of Colonel 
Jesse Woodhull, who lived at Mastic, Long Island, but after the 
Revolution removed to Orange County, New York. 

(See Genealogy, No. 75.) 



NOTE Ee.— PICKARD. 

John Pickard, the first ancestor of the Pickard family in America, 
came from Rowly, England. 

He became a farmer, and for five generations the family has held 
to the same occupation in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. 

None of the sons of Samuel Pickard, however, followed the quiet, 
uneventful life of agriculture. Four completed a college course: 
two engaged in educational work; two entered the ministry, and two 
entered the mercantile life, one of whom is a prominent merchant in 
Boston.

NOTE Ff.— READING. 

The Reading family is of ancient origin, as has been said, their 
best monument is the English settlement Reading, the shiretown of 
Berks. 

Colonel John Reading, the founder of the New Jersey family of 
this name, is supposed to have emigrated to America in 1684. He 
was one of the largest landed proprietors in the province. 

The early spelling of the name was de Redygne, Rydinge, and 
Redding. 

(See "Reading Howell, Genealogy/') (See Genealogy, No. 305.) 



NOTE Gg.— SCHtTREMAN-NEVIUS. 

Jacobus (or James) Schureman came to this country in company 
with the Rev. Theodorus Jacobus Frielinghuysen, from Holland in 
1719. 

He is said to have been a man "respectable for his literary 
acquirements, as well as for his piety." 

He wrote verse, and tradition says that he used his rhythmic 
talents effectively in the defense of his pastor Frielinghuysen, whose 
earnest evangelical preaching seems to have made him enemies. He 
also taught a school in the Netherland language. 

His wife was Antje, daughter of Albert Terhune, of Flatbush, 
Long Island. Their son, John Schureman, was a merchant in 
New Brunswick, New Jersey. He held many places of prominence 
and trust in the community. Was frequently elected to the Legis- 
lature and was a Judge of the County Court. He was also a member 
of the Committee of Safety appointed by the Provincial Congress of 
New Jersey to exercise the powers of the Congress, during their 
recess, from August 5, 1775, to September 20th. 

He was a man of deep piety and great benevolence. He married 
Ann De Remere, widow of Peter Stryker. 

James, son of John Schureman, was a graduate of Queens Col- 
lege, (now Rutgers College) in 1775, and was 2nd Lieutenant, in 
Colonel John Neilson/s Battalion of minute men, January 10, 
1776. A member of the Continental Congress from New Jersey 
1786-1788, also a member of the Provincial Congress of New Jersey 
in 1786. 

He was elected to the first Congress of the United States as a 
Federalist, and served from March 4, 1789, to March 3, 1791. 

He succeeded John Rutherford as United States Senator, and 
subsequently was Mayor of New Brunswick. 

He married Eleanor, daughter of David Williamson and Eleanor 
Schuyler. Their daughter Margaret married her cousin, David 
Schureman Nevius, a descendant of Johannes Nevius, who came to 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 281 



New Amsterdam, probably from Solingen, Westphalia. Bans of mar- 
riage with Ararentje Blyck from Batavia, East Indies, were pub- 
lished November 18, 1653. 

James Schureman N"evius, son of David and Margaret Nevius, 
married, December 21, 1837, Hannah Bowne. They had several chil- 
dren. Their eldest son, the Hon. Henry Martin Nevius, of Eed Bank, 
New Jersey, was a gallant soldier in the Civil War. He commanded 
the centre of the little band of heroes which resisted successfully 
Early's attack upon the City of Washington. In the engagement 
his left arm was shattered by a bullet, and that same night President 
Lincoln made him a Major. 

(See "Schureman Genealogy") 

Margaret Schureman Nevius, a sister of the above mentioned 
Henry Martin NTevius, married John Woodhull, of Freehold, New 
Jersey. 

(See Genealogy, No. 318.) 



NOTE Hh.— SPOFFORD. 

The Spofforth, or Spofford family is very ancient. Before the 
Conquest, Granalban de Spofford was lord of the Manor of Spofforth, 
and held large possessions in Yorkshire, a list of which may be seen 
in Domesday Book. 

The name has been variously spelled, Spawford, Spofforth, Spaf- 
ford and Spoiford. 

Sarah, only child of Captain George Spofford, of the Royal Navy, 
was step-daughter of the celebrated divine the Rev. Gilbert Tennent, 
D. D., first pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia, 
as Captain Spofford' s widow, became the third wife of Gilbert Ten- 
nent. 

(See Genealogy, No. 46.) 



NOTE Ii.— TANGIER SMITH. 

The "Tangier" Smiths are descendants of Colonel William Smith, 
who was born at Newton, near Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire, 
England. 

He was high in favor with Charles II., and was by his majesty 
appointed Governor of the royal city of Tangier, Africa, in the 
year 1675. 

It was intended to establish there a colony for trade, but finally 
the project was abandoned. 

After his recall from that distant port, Colonel Smith set sail 
for America, arriving with his family at New York, August 6, 1686. 



282 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



In October, 1687, he purchased Little Neck in Brookhaven, Long 
Island, and in 1689 bought a large tract of land extending from 
"the country road to South Bay, and from Fireland river to Mastic 
river." 

Colonel Smith was the founder of St. George's Manor. He was 
a member of the Council of the Province of New York, and at one 
time its President, he was also a Judge, or Delegate, of the Prerogative 
Court for the County of Suffolk. 

His wife was Martha, daughter of Henry Tunstall, Esq., of 
Putney, in the County of Surrey, England. 

He died at Little Neck, Long Island, February 18, 1705. His 
descendants have been called "Tangier" Smiths, from the early days 
to distinguish them from other well known Smiths of the same 
vicinity. This family has had many worthy representatives. 

The Eev. Caleb Smith, a younger brother of Elizabeth Smith, who 
married the Hon. John Woodhull, of Miller's Place, Long Island, 
was an eminent scholar and a man of renowned piety. 

He married the third daughter of President Jonathan Dickenson, 
of Princeton, and had three daughters, one of whom married George 
Green, of New Jersey, and had three sons; another, who married 
Captain Jonathan Phillips, IT. S. A., and had children; and a third 
daughter, who married the Hon. William Churchill Houston, of the 
American Congress in Kevolutionary times.

NOTE Kk.— THOMPSON-BEE WSTEE. 

John Thompson, the ancestor of the Thompson family of Suf- 
folk County, Long Island, was with Eichard Wodhull, Eichard Floyd 
and others, one of the fifty-five original proprietors of the town of 
Brookhaven. 

His wife was Hannah, grand-daughter of Elder William Brewster, 
the most prominent of the band of Pilgrims who came over in the 
"Mayflower." 

Jonathan Thompson, born October 25, 1710, married, September 
30, 1734, Mary, daughter of Eichard Wodhull (III.); she was born 
April 11, 1711. She was first cousin of the distinguished General 
Nathaniel Woodhull, so active in the Colonial Wars, who met his 
death at the Battle of Long Island. 

(See the Family of Thompson in the "New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Becord," January, 1896.) 



284 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



Frederick Diodati Thompson, a descendant of the above, resides 
at Sagtikos Manor, Apple-Tree Wicke, Long Island. He graduated 
LL. B., at Columbia College, and is the author of a book of travels, 
"In the track of the Sun," and of numerous magazine articles. 

He is a member of the New York Historical Society, Long Island 
Historical Society, the Knickerbocker and LTnion Clubs, St. George's 
Society, Academy of Design, Fraternity of Delta Psi, Sons of the 
Revolution, Society of Colonial Wars, a member of the Order of the 
Cincinnati, Knight of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, Knight 
of St. Maurice and St. Lazare of Italy, Grand Officer of the Osmanlieh 
and Grand Officer of the Medjidieh of Turkey. 

He has also been recognized as a Count by the authorities of 
Lucca, Italy, and created an hereditary Roman Count by Pope 
Leo XIII. 

A parchment in the family states that the Diodatis' back to the 
14th Century have always been the flower of chivalry. 

(See Genealogy, No. 13.) 

Elder William Brewster, born in England in 1560, received 
his education at the University of Cambridge, after which he 
entered the service of a certain William Davidson, a Courtier 
of Queen Elizabeth, and her Ambassador in both Scotland and 
Holland. 

Weary of the persecutions which began to oppress the people, 
Elder Brewster came to the New Country in the "Mayflower" in 1620, 
and suffered with other brave-hearted colonists "of labour, hunger 
and watching." 

It is said that "his Bible and his arms were equally familiar to 
him and he was always ready for any duty or suffering to which he 
was called." 

Elder Brewster enjoyed a hearty old age and died April 16, 1644, 
in the eighty-fourth year of his age. 

Had his diffidence permitted him to exercise the pastoral office, 
it has been said, he would have had more influence; he was, however, 
renowned for his sincere consistent Christian life. 

After his death his books were valued at £43 in silver, as appears 
by the Colony Record, where a catalogue is preserved. 

(See "American Biography," by Jeremy Belnap, D. D., of Boston, 
July, 1798.) 

He had four sons, Love, Wrestling, Jonathan and William; and 
four daughters. Patience, who married in 1624, Thomas Prince, Gov- 
ernor of Massachusetts; Fear, who married Isaac Allerton; Lucre tia 
and Mary. 

Hannah, a grandchild of Elder Brewster, married in 1656, John 
Thompson, of Setauket, Long Island. Another grandchild, the Rev. 
Nathaniel Brewster, son of Jonathan, graduated from Harvard in 
1642, and settled at Brookhaven, Long Island, as its first pastor in 
1665. 

(See Thompson's "History of Long Island.")

NOTE LL— TOURNEUR. 

In his "History of Harlem: Its Origin and Early Annals," James 
Riker writes thus of the "Woodhull-Tourneur marriage": 

"The Governor's License was obtained February 5, 1683, and 
the nuptials were probably celebrated at Setauket, in the hospitable 
home of the Woodhulls." (The name at that period was Wodhull.) 

Daniel Tourneur was the son of Daniel Tourneur, of Picardy, 
France; he was born in Holland, but was made "a free denizen of 
this place and province" (Harlem) by special letters dated January 
13, 1672. 

(See Genealogy, No. 5.) 



NOTE Mm.— VROOM-DELAMATER. 

On the paternal side, the lineage of Caroline Mandeville Vroom 
may be traced to the following families of the Dutch nobility, Yan 
Ness, Vanderburgh, Van de Bogaert (Bogert, Bogart or Bogardus), 
and Vroom. 

"Jans Jansen de Rapalie, or Rapaelji, a Huguenot, from Rochelle, 
was the common ancestor of all the American family of this name. 

He arrived in the ship "Unity" in 1623, and on June 16, 1637, 
he bought from the Indians a tract of 335 acres in Brooklyn, where 
the United States Marine Hospital now stands." 

The maternal ancestor of the Bogerts was the celebrated Sarah 
de Rapaelji, born in 1625. She was the first child born in New 
York, and "Governor Stuyvesant in consideration of this fact, granted 
her a valley of land near the city." (See Watson's "Annals of 
Philadelphia," Edition of 1855.) 

Another ancestor, Baron Resolve Waldron, though born in Haar- 
lem, Holland, was of English descent. The name of Waldron was 
borne in the reign of Henry II., A. D., 1157, by Walter Waldron, 
one of the barons of the time. (See Burke's "Landed Gentry.") 

This family was of high repute from the time of the Norman 
Conquest. (See Riker's "History of Harlem," page 104.) Baron 
Resolve Waldron was an officer on the staff of Governor Stuyvesant, 
Embassador to New England, to Virginia and to Lord Baltimore. 
(See "American Ancestry.") He married Rebecca Hendricks, of Am- 
sterdam, Holland. 

The family of Catalina Delamater, (le Maitre, or le Maistre,) 
mother of Caroline Mandeville Vroom, descended from an ancient 
house of Brittany, which married into the renowned Arnauld family, 
whose history is so closely woven with the annals of Port Royal, 
France. (See Schimmelpenninck's "Annals of Port Royal.") 

The le Maistres belonged to the nobility of the "Robe and Sword." 
(See "Genealogy of Descendants of Claude Le Maitre" (Delamater), 
by La Fayette De La Mater, Joel Munsell's Sons, Albany, 1882.) 



286 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



The first Mandeville, or de Manevile, in England, crossed the 
Channel with William the Conqueror, and had bestowed upon him 
vast estates. (See "Domesday Book.") 

Geoffrey de Mandeville gave to Westminster Abbey, the great 
Estate of Hyde, and was "the second private person to be buried in 
the Abbey." 

Gellis de Mandeville, the first of the name in America, arrived 
in the ship "Moesman," in 1659. His home was at the foot of 12th 
St., called "Thappen Couch," and his farm extended to 21st Street. 

The house was standing in 1776, and is shown in old maps in 
the Historical Society of New York. Gellis and his wife Yoneka 
Waldron were received as members of the Collegiate Church, in 1677. 
(See "Collegiate Church Records.") 

This Gellis is said to have been the second son of Duke Theodore 
Mandeville, whose early Norman ancestor was Drago De Monti Acuto, 
who in the time of the Conquest was in the train of Robert, Earl 
of Moreton; from this Drago are descended the Montecute, Montague 
and Mandeville families. 

The late Ex- Vice President Schuyler Colfax was in this line of 
descent. (See "Life of Colfax," by 0. J. Hollister, page 13.) 

The father of Caroline Mandeville Vroom was a son of Colonel 
Peter Dumont Vroom and Elsie Bogert. Colonel Vroom raised the 
first military company in New Jersey in which he served as lieutenant, 
Captain, Major, and Lieutenant-Colonel. 

He led a company at the Battle of Germantown, and saw much 
active service. 

One son, Peter Dumont Vroom, Jr., was Governor of New Jersey, 
from 1829-1832 and from 1833-1836. Member of Congress 1839- 
1841, and Minister to Prussia from 1853-1857. 

The eldest son of Colonel Peter D. Vroom, Sr., was Guysbert 
Bogert Vroom, cashier in the Wall Street Bank, New York, for many 
years. 

Though years younger than Alexander Hamilton, that peer of 
statesmen, prince of financiers, Guysbert B. Vroom was his intimate 
friend, and one of Hamilton's pall-bearers. 

A tiny gold brooch containing a lock of Hamilton's hair, lettered 
upon the back, "A. H. to G. B. V.," is in the possession of George 
Augustus Vroom, of Hackensack, New Jersey. 

(See Genealogy, No. 312.) 



NOTE Nn.— WIKOFF-SCUDDER. 

The first ancestor of the Wyckoff family in America was Pieter 
Claez Wyckoff, who came from Holland to this country, in the year 
1636, and settled at Flatlands, Long Island. 

He was Magistrate of this town in 1662, and his name appears 
as one of the patentees in the town charter in 1667 and 1686. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 287 



His wife was Guetie, daughter of Hendrick Yan Ness. Their 
sons were Claes, or Claez, Hendrick, Cornelius and Pieter. 

The name for several generations has been spelled Wikoff in 
New Jersey. Several of the Monmouth County Wikoffs did good 
service in the Kevolutionary War. 

Auke Wikoff was Lieutenant Colonel, 3rd Regiment, Monmouth, 
July 23, 1776, Colonel of same regiment, and prisoner of war Sep- 
tember, 1780. 

Peter Wikoff was Captain First Battalion, Somerset. 

(See "Jerseymen in the Kevolutionary War.") 

(See Genealogy, No. 138.) (See Genealogy, No. 139.) 

(See Genealogy, No. 306.) 

Eev. Henry Scudder, of Colingborne, Wiltshire, England, a gradu- 
ate of Christ College, Cambridge, was distinguished both as a preacher 
and as an author. 

He presided at the Committee of Clergymen appointed by Charles 
I., at Westminster Abbey, in 1643. 

One of his works, "The Christian's Daily Walk," has received 
high praise from men of intellect and culture. 

Thomas Scudder, (supposed to be his son), came to America 
in 1635. John, son of Thomas, married Mary, eldest daughter of 
William and Dorothy King, and removed to Long Island. 

Jacob Scudder, son of Benjamin, was born November 29, 1707, 
in Huntington, Long Island. He married, August 5, 1731, Abia 
Rowe. Colonel Nathaniel was the son of Jacob Scudder; he was 
born in Huntington, Long Island. Graduated from the College of 
New Jersey (now Princeton University) in 1751, and was afterwards 
a Trustee of the College. 

He was a physician of high repute; a Member of the Provincial 
Continental Congress from 1777 to 1779; a member of the New York 
Legislature, Speaker of the House, and also a member of the Com- 
mittee of Safety. 

The Articles of Confederation on the part and behalf of the 
State of New Jersey, were signed by the names of John Witherspoon, 
and Nathaniel Scudder, November 26, 1778. 

At the legislative meeting held at Princeton, November 20, 1777, 
the Rev. John Witherspoon, D. D., President of the college, Colonel 
Nathaniel Scudder, M. D., and Elias Boudinot, with two others, were 
selected to represent the State in the National Congress. 

Colonel Nathaniel Scudder, M. D., married in 1752, Isabella, 
daughter of Colonel Kenneth Anderson, son of the Hon. John An- 
derson, who came from Scotland to South Amboy about 1725. 

The Hon. John Anderson married Anne, daughter of John Reed, 
Surveyor-General of the Province of New Jersey. 

A notice in an Amboy paper of March 30, 1736, reads as follows: 
"March 27, died here in his 71st year, Hon. John Anderson, President 
of his Majesty's Council and Commander-in-Chief of this Province of 



288 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 

New Jersey, a gentleman of the strictest honor and integrity, greatly 
valued, and lamented by all." 

In his father's will, Kenneth was left "a scymetar and gold signet- 
ring." 

(See Cooley's "Genealogy of Early Settlers in Trenton and 
Ewing") 

The children of Colonel Nathaniel Scudder, M. D., were John 
Anderson, Joseph, Kenneth, Lydia, and Hannah. 

Hannah Scudder married Captain William Wikoff, of Monmouth 
County, New Jersey. Their daughter, Ann Wikoff, married John 
Woodhull, M. D., son of the Rev. John Woodhull, D. D. 

Colonel Nathaniel Scudder met his death in an engagement at 
Black Point, near Shrewsbury, Monmouth County, New Jersey, Oc- 
tober 16, 1781. A fine old slab in the historic "old Tennent" Church- 
yard reads thus: 

Memory of 

The Honorable

NOTE Pp.— WOODHULL BALLAD. 

(Published in the London Mirror in 1823.) 

Stay! traveller, stay! and hear me tell 

A gallant soldier's fate! 
'Twas on this spot brave Woodhull fell 

Sad story to relate! 

A stout brigade was his command, 

Of Suffolk's sons compos'd; 
Thus far he led his patriot band, 

And here his life he clos'd; 

That time Lord Howe, from Gravesend Bay, 

His banner bold advanced, 
On that same dark and doubtful day, 

In evil hour it chanc'd 

That Suffolk's raw, new levied force, 

Surpris'd and overthrown, 
By sudden charge of furious horse, 

Took flight and left alone 

Their chief expos'd on battle field, 

Without a troop or guard, 
For him to raise protecting shield 

'Gainst Britain's vengeful sword! 

He saw the desp'rate day was lost, 

He saw himself betray'd; 
Not one remained of all his host 

To lend him needful aid; 

Forthwith fierce horsemen, gath'ring round, 

Cut off all hope of flight; 
And soon his single arm he found 

With fearful odds must fight; 

Full twenty foes about his head 

Their glittering sabres flung, 
And down, on his uplifted blade, 

Swift blows descending rung! 

But soon he ceas'd such fruitless strife, 

And now for quarter cried, 
Yet vainly begg'd a prisoner's life, 

For thus the foe replied: 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 291 



"Who will not say, 'God save the King/ 
No mercy he shall find; 
These are the terms from George wejbring; 
Art thou to these inclin'd? 

" If thou wilt straight pronounce these words, 
We grant thy traitor's prayer, 
And, peaceful sheathed, our loyal swords 
Thy rebel life shall spare. 

" But if this offer thou refuse, 
Thy doom is instant death; 
Then speak, thy life to save or lose 
It hangs on thy next breath!" 

The chief, indignant, answering, spake, 
" Your mercy then I spurn, 
On such base terms my life to take, 
Proud haughty foe I scorn! 

" I freely say ' God save us all/ 
Those words include your King; 
If more ye ask, then must I fall, 
Nought else from me ye'll wring." 

"No! rebel, no! 'tis not enough," 

On ev'ry side he heard ; 
"And since thou art such stubborn stuff, 

Lo, thus we keep our word!" 

Then straightway, show'ring thick as hail, 

Their cruel blows they dealt, 
Their countless weapons fiercely fell, 

And many an edge he felt! 

Yet still he held his trusty sword 

Upraised above his head, 
And feebly strove his life to guard 

While he profusely bled! 

" God save the King," the horsemen said, 

At every stroke they gave; 
"God save us all," he faintly cried, 
"And me, a sinner save!" 

Till gashed with many a gaping wound 
At length they smote him dead, 

And, prostrate stretched upon the ground, 
His generous spirit fled! 

A more heroic, gallant end, 

No age nor clime can boast! 
Yet history ne'er the tale hath penned 

And but for me 't were lost! 

Had he thus died for ancient Rome, 

His now forgotten name, 
By poet's page, and sculptured tomb, 

Had well been known to Fame!

STRONG— CRUGER. 
(Too late for classification.) 

The Strong Family of England was originally located in the 
County of Shropshire. The name is stated in one record, on what 
authority is not known, to have been originally McStrachan, and to 
have gone through the following changes, viz.: McStrachan, Strachan, 
Strachn, Strong. 

One of the family married an heiress of Griffiths, of County of 
Caernarvon, Wales, and went thither to reside in 1545. 

Richard Strong, first generation, was of this branch of the family, 
and was born in the County of Caernarvon, Wales, 1561. In 1590 he 
removed to Taunton, Somersetshire, England, where he died in 1613, 
leaving a son John, then 8 years of age, and a daughter Eleanor. 

John Strong, born in Taunton, England, 1605, died at Northamp- 
ton, Massachusetts, April 14, 1699. From Taunton he removed to 
London, and afterwards to Plymouth, from which latter point he sailed 
on the ship "Mary and John," March 20, 1630. He married, in De- 
cember, 1630, his second wife, Abigail Ford, of Dorchester, Massa- 
chusetts. She died the mother of 16 children, July 6, 1688, aged 
about 80 years. 

Elder John Strong, founder of Dorchester, Hingham and Taun- 
ton, took the Freeman's Oath at Boston, March 9, 1636, Freeman of 
Plymouth County in 1638; Deputy from Taunton General Court in 
Plymouth, 1641-3-4; Founder of Windsor. Moved to Northampton in 
1659. His first wife, name unknown, he married in England, she 
dying immediately on landing in this country, leaving two children, 
the younger of which died within two months of its mother. 

Thomas Strong, eldest son of Elder John Strong and Abigail Ford, 
his wife, was born in Dorchester, 163-, and died October 3, 1689. 

He married, December 5, 1660, Mary Hewett, who died February 
20, 1670-1, leaving five children. He married, October 10, 1671, his 
second wife, Rachel Holton. They had eleven children. 

Selah Strong, their son, born at Northampton, Massachusetts, 
December 23, 1680, died April 8, 1732. He married, June 23, 1702, 
Abigail Terry, of South old, Long Island, who died February 2, 1761. 

Selah Strong, (2nd,), their son, born at Setauket, Long Island, 
February 23, 1713-14, married, October 7, 1740, Hannah Woodhull, 
daughter of Nathaniel Woodhull and Sarah Smith. She was born 
February 25, 1718. 

They settled at Blooming Grove, New York. 

(See Genealogy, No. 20.) 

Major Nathaniel Strong, son of Selah Strong, (2nd,), was born 
November 18, 1737, probably at Brookhaven, Long Island. Murdered 
by Tories in his house, at Blooming Grove, Orange County, New York, 
November 18, 1778. He was Major in Colonel Jesse Woodhull's regi- 
ment. He married Amy Brewster, who was born about the year 1741. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 293 

Selah Strong, (3rd,), son of Major Nathaniel Strong, married Ruth 
Woodhull, daughter of Captain Ebenezer Woodhull and Abigail 
Howell. 

Schuyler Strong, son of Selah Strong, (3rd,), married Frances 
Minerva Cruger. 

(See Genealogy, No. 81.) 

The ancestors of the Crugers, were Huguenots, the original name 
was Crieger. They escaped from France during the massacre of St. 
Bartholomew. 

Some reached England in safety, others found a refuge at Altona, 
in the Duchy of Holstein. 

Daniel Cruger, born in Altona, came to America in the year 1768, 
and settled at Sunbury, Pa. He married Elizabeth Wheaton, of New 
Jersey. 

Daniel Cruger, Jr., (General,), born December 22, 1780, married, 
February 11, 1805 or 1806, Hannah, daughter of Joseph Thome 
Clement. She was a descendant of the famous Captain John Under- 
bill, and his second wife, Elizabeth Feake. Her mother was Frances, 
daughter of Absalom Townsend and Helen De Kay. 

General Daniel Cruger married second, Lydia Boggs Shepherd 
(widow of Colonel Moses Shepherd).

WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 303 



BIOGEAPHICAL SKETCH VII. 

Nathaniel Woodhull, (General), fourth generation from Eich- 
ard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the eldest 
son of Nathaniel Wodhull and Sarah Smith. He was born at St. 
George's Manor, Mastic, Long Island, December 30, 1722. 

His early life was spent in assisting his father to cultivate the 
possessions he had inherited. 

His first public employment was in a military capacity in the war 
between Great Britain and France 1754-1760. 

He was appointed Major in the Provincial forces of New York, 
and served as such in the army under General Abercrombie, intended 
for the reduction of Ticonderoga and Crown Point, and distinguished 
himself by his daring and bravery in the assault on Ticonderoga. 

"Major Nathaniel Woodhull, of Suffolk, and Major Eichard Hew- 
lett, of Queens, with six hundred and sixty-eight men under Captain 
Bradstreet captured Fort Frontenac, June, 1758." 

In the year 1760 he served as Colonel of the Third Eegiment, 
New York Provincials, under General Jeffrey Amherst, which 
marched against Montreal and effected the final reduction of Canada. 

The original journal kept by Colonel Woodhull, written during 
the memorable expeditions against Montreal, is in the possession of 
one of his descendants at Mastic, Long Island. It was published in 
Boston in the year 1760, under the title of "All Canada in the Hands 
of the English/' 

(For brief extracts of which, see Genealogical Appendix, Note I.) 

Colonel Woodhull was a representative from Suffolk County, New 
York, in the Colonial Assembly in 1769, and "for the six consecutive 
years which preceded the Eevolution, one of the ablest opponents of 
the colonial government. In connection with George Clinton and 
General Schuyler, General Woodhull assisted to bring about the crisis 
which inaugurated the Eevolution in this Colony." 

He was appointed by the Provincial Congress August 22, 1775, 
Brigadier-General of the Militia of Suffolk and Queens Counties, 
Long Island. 

On the 28th of August, 1775 — General Woodhull was elected 
President of the Provincial Congress of New York, in which body 
sat Jay, Livingston, Benson and Schuyler, and he also held the 
same office in the Congress that succeeded July 9th, 1776, under the 
new form of government. 

On August 25th, 1776, he was appointed to the command of the 
Militia at Jamaica. 

Owing to what has been defined as the "unskilful generalship 
of the Provincial Congress," there followed, "the catastrophe of a 
divided command." It has been well said, "the nature of the service 
in which General Woodhull was employed and the force placed under 
him were alike unworthy of his command. He had more military 



304 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



experience than most of the officers of the Eevolutionary Army, and 
no one in this State promised to make a better general officer." 

In preparing to carry out the orders of Congress, it is evident 
that he knew himself and his men to be in a perilous strait. 

He wrote, "I am now at Jamaica, with less than one hundred 
men. I will continue here as long as I can, in hopes of a re-inf orce- 
ment." 

(See "Letter to Provincial Congress," Genealogical Appendix, 
Note V.) 

It was General Washington's hope to re-inforce Woodhull by a 
detachment of a thousand men from Connecticut under Trumbull. 

(See "Washington's letter to Congress," Genealogical Appendix, 
Note W.) 

It has been said of him, "he adopted the course which his own 
delicate sense of honor dictated," and, "it was only after his assur- 
ance that aid could not possibly reach him that he abandoned his 
post of duty." 

Seemingly unconscious of any personal danger, General Woodhull 
returned to his headquarters at the Inn of Increase Carpenter, where 
it is said, "he tied his horse to the rail-fence, entered the old Dutch 
farm-house, and had just seated himself, when the dragoons of De- 
lancey's 17th British Regiment rode up to the Inn door. 

"The General suddenly aroused by the sound of horses' hoofs, 
(which he seems not to have heard until they were at the door, owing 
to the noise of the elements, a fierce thunder storm having arisen) 
sprang to a side door, and was out of the house in an instant. He 
was about to clear the rail-fence to reach his horse, when some of 
the dismounted dragoons intercepted and captured him." 

To quote once again, "The scene of sickening murder which 
followed is scarcely paralleled in history since civilization forbade the 
slaughter of prisoners as the privilege of a conqueror. 

"The wretched and cowardly officer, who first reached the Gen- 
eral has had the rare good fortune to have a strange obscurity thrown 
over his identity. The ruffian, whoever he was, approached the Gen- 
eral with the exclamation, ' Surrender you damned rebel!' upon which 
Woodhull at once tendered him his sword. 

"This, however, was not enough, for with uplifted sword, the 
British officer advanced furiously exclaiming, 'Say, God save the 
King.' 

"In accents of dignity and courage, General Woodhull replied, 
'God save us all.' 'Say, God save the King,' shouted the brutal 
officer. Whereupon he aimed the swift blows of his sabre at the 
defenceless head of the General." 

It is said on good authority that the wounds received by Wood- 
hull were ten in number, seven deep gashes on his arm, nearly 
severing it in two places from his body, and three wounds on his 
head. 

In this pitiful condition, he was mounted behind one of the 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 305 



British troopers, and hurried to Jamaica, the men fearing an inter- 
ception from WoodhuH's force. 

Arriving at the village, one account declares that a British sur- 
geon dressed the General's wounds "with much kindness and skill," 
while other accounts declare that he was fearfully neglected, both 
then and later. 

As a prisoner of war he with others, was then removed to the 
New Utrecht Church, "which was unceremoniously used as a prison" 
by the British. Again he was removed, this time to the wretched 
quarters of a prison-ship, where witnesses declared he was left in a 
pitiable condition dying from neglect and lack of care. 

Colonel Troop, later a personal friend and associate of Hamilton 
and Jay, testified to the horrors of the prison-ship and the indignities 
showered upon the dying General. Not until they knew his life was 
fast ebbing away, did the inhuman officers of the ship permit his 
removal to the De Sille house, adjacent to the New Utrecht Church. 

Here he was permitted the blessings of his wife's gentle ministra- 
tions, and the care which earlier permitted, might have saved his life. 

"With his dying breath he greeted his beloved wife (Ruth, daughter 
of the Hon. Nicoll Floyd, and sister of General William Floyd, one 
of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence), and then calmly 
directed that the needs of the American prisoners, then in an almost 
starving condition, should be supplied by his wife with money and 
provisions. 

"With these words of noble self-forgetfulness upon his lips, the 
spirit of Nathaniel Woodhull took its flight." 

It is said that one of the battalions that was employed in the 
inglorious warfare against an unresisting individual was commanded 
by Major Crewe, a distant kinsman of General Woodhull, and that 
when he came to be apprised of the circumstances of the case, he 
was so disgusted that he either resigned his commission and quit the 
service, or obtained permission to leave the army and returned to 
England. 

As it has been questioned whether or not there was a British 
officer of the name of Crewe serving in the Eevolutionary War, see 
"British Officers Serving in the American Revolution" 1774-1783. 
Compiled by Worthington Chauncey Ford, published 1897, for the 
following: 

"Richard Crewe, Captain of 17th Dragoons, July 11, 1769. Major 
of 17th Dragoons, February 25, 1776." 

Field says of the subject of this sketch: "The high station which 
he had held in the councils of the revolutionists, the grand modera- 
tion of his character, combined with the firmness, patriotism and self- 
devotion for which he was remarkable, would under any circum- 
stances have given him an honorable reputation. But when the acts 
of his pure life were crowned with the final sacrifice of martyrdom. 
General WoodhuH's name was enrolled among his country's noblest 
heroes." 



306 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



Another declares, "The capture of General Woodhull was one of 
the most calamitous events of the Eevolution. 

"It deprived the country of the talents, the experience, and coun- 
sels of one of the ablest and most patriotic of her citizens. 

"His death spread a gloom over Long Island, and his memory will 
"be cherished among their fondest recollections." 

And still another says, "The most tragical event of the Battle of 
Long Island, was far away in Jamaica Village. The life of Woodhull, 
always brave and manly and efficient, was the most precious sacrifice 
Long Island could offer on the altar of our liberties." 

A Middlesex (London) Journal of 1776 says, "We were greatly 
shocked at the massacre made by the Highlanders after victory was 
declared." 

In 1823 a poem appeared in the London Mirror, on the subject 
of General WoodhulPs death, which although in parts, historically in- 
correct, will be of interest to those who bear his name. 

(See Genealogical Appendix, Note Pp.) 

In 1849 a tragedy was written by Mr. Lester upon his death, also 
the following ballad written by Epes Sargent, was published in the 
New York National Advocate, February 28, 1821. 

WOODHULL. 

'Twas when Long Island's heights beheld the King's invading horde, 
That, by outnumbered foes compelled, our chief gave up his sword. 
Then spoke the victor: " Now from me no mercy shall you wring, 
Unless, base rebel, on your knee, you cry, ' God save the King.' " 
With reverent, but undaunted, tone then Woodhull made reply: 

" No King I own, save one alone, the Lord of earth and sky, 
But far from me the wish that ill your monarch should befall ; 
So freely, and with right good-will, I'll say: l God save us all.' " 
Shouted the foeman: "Paltering slave, repeat, without delay, 

1 God save the King,' nor longer brave the fury that can slay." 
But Woodhull said: " Unarmed I hear; yet threats cannot appal 
Ne'er pass these lips the breath of fear, and so — God save us all." 

"Then rebel rue thy stubborn will," the ruffian victor cried; 

"This weapon shall my threat fulfil; so perish in thy pride." 
Rapid as thought the murderous blow fell on the prisoner's head; 
With warrior rage he scanned his foe, then staggering, sank and bled, 
But anger vanished with his fall ; his heart the wrong forgave ; 
Dying, he sighed, " God save you all, and me, a sinner, save." 

The inscription on his tombstone is as follows: — 

In Memory of 

Gen'l Nathaniel Woodhull 

Who, wounded and a prisoner. Died on the 20th, of September 1776. 

In the 54th, year of his age. 

Regretted by all who knew how to value his many private 
virtues, and that pure zeal, for the rights of his country, to 
which he perished a victim. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 307 



In 1784 General Woodhulr's old home-stead at Mastic was de- 
stroyed by fire, the only things saved being his swords and regi- 
mentals, his military chest, personal correspondence, a silver tankard, 
a Family and Farm Journal, the Journal of his Military Campaign, 
and his Commission as Colonel. 

The De Sille house where the wounded General died, has disap- 
peared since 1850, at which time it was nearly two hundred years old. 

His widow, and only daughter Elizabeth, survived the General, the 
latter becoming the wife of Henry Mcoll, Esq. 

(See Genealogy, No. 22.) 

Their descendants occupy the home-stead built soon after the con- 
flagration, upon the site of the original one. 

The Woodhull Memorial. 

At a meeting held in January, 1904, at the earnest suggestion of 
Mr. William Nagle, of Hollis, Long Island, a committee was formed 
consisting of Messrs. F. W. Dunton, John A. Loope and William 
Nagle to erect a monument to the memory of General Nathaniel 
Woodhull on the Public School lawn. 

On May 30, 1904, the people of Hollis, together with many out- 
siders, assembled for the purpose of dedicating the monument, the 
dedication exercises being preceded by a parade of the school children 
and local organizations. 

At the conclusion of the parade the column came to a halt beside 
the monument — a thirty pound Parrott gun presented by the United 
States Government, mounted on a granite block bearing the name 
"Woodhull" together with a suitable inscription. 

The dedicatory exercises were opened with an invocation by the 
Et. Eev. Bishop Burgess of the Diocese of Long Island, who was fol- 
lowed by Frederick W. Dunton, the founder of Hollis, who gave a 
brief review of the twenty years' history of the town. 

At the conclusion of Mr. Dunton's address, the school children and 
those assembled sang a song to the tune of "My Maryland," written in 
honor of the memory of General Woodhull, after which Mr. George 
A. Nagle, on behalf of the people of Hollis, made the presentation of 
the monument in a stirring forceful speech. 

This was responded to by Archdeacon Henry B. Bryan, on behalf 
of the American nation, who spoke in an entertaining and pleasing 
manner. 

The oration of the day followed, and was delivered by Ex-Con- 
gressman James W. Covert, who reviewed the career of General Wood- 
hull, paying a warm tribute to his patriotism and valor. 

During the memorial exercises, , John A. Loope introduced Mr. 
Jesse Calvin Woodhull, of Brooklyn,. N. Y., who in a few well chosen 
words presented to the Hollis Public School, a handsome picture of 
the old De Sille House at New Utrecht, where General Woodhull died 
from his wounds. 

The exercises were closed by the singing of "America."

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH VIII. 

Eichard Woodhull, fourth generation from Kichard Wodhull I., 
Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the second son of Na- 
thaniel Wodhull and Sarah, daughter of Richard Smith, (2nd,), of 
Smithtown, Long Island. 

He was born May 22, 1729, and graduated from Yale College in 
1752. He officiated as tutor in the college from April, 1756, to 
September, 1761. 

He was admitted to the bar of New Haven County, November, 
1762, but was recalled the next March to the position which he so 
ably filled, "his proficiency in mathematical and scientific studies 
making him particularly valuable as a teacher." 

About this time, however, he became imbued with the doctrine of 
Robert Sandeman, which obliged him to be "a non-resistant in the 
Revolution," and in consequence of this, was obliged by President 
Clapp, of Yale, to resign. 

He taught in the Hopkins Grammar School from 1782 to 1785. 
Professor Kingsley said of him, "He enjoyed a high reputation for his 
attainments in all the branches of collegiate learning, but was par- 
ticularly distinguished in the department of mathematics." 

President Dwight described him as "a man of extensive and varied 
learning, generally reserved, but when drawn into conversation highly 
interesting." 

He married four times. He died in New Haven, Conn., in his 
home at Elm and Church Sts., which he purchased in 1765, December 
7, 1797, in his sixty-ninth year. 

His fourth wife survived him, as did an only daughter. 

(See Genealogy, No. 25.) 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH IX. 

Jesse Woodhull, (Colonel), fourth generation from Richard 
Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the third son 
of Nathaniel Wodhull and Sarah Smith, and a brother of General 
Nathaniel Woodhull. 

He was born at Mastic, Long Island, February 10, 1735, and 
settled in Orange County, New York, about the year 1753, purchasing 
a tract of 500 acres at Blagg's Cove, in the town of Blooming Grove 
(formerly a part of Cornwall, New York.) 

He was a leading man in the County before the Revolution, and 
was conspicuous in all the public events that led up to it. He was a 
delegate to the first Provincial Convention, April 20, 1775. Raised 
the first regiment in Cornwall and bore a prominent part in the excit- 
ing events which took place along the banks of the Hudson especially 
in the autumn of 1777. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 309 



About September 20, of the same year, General Howe was march- 
ing into the City of Philadelphia, Burgoyne already in Saratoga, 
when a force of British soldiers, three thousand strong, entered New 
York, joined Sir Henry Clinton, and a few days later started up the 
Hudson. 

By feigning an attack on Peekskill, the force of the enemy crossed 
the river to Stony Point, marched around the Western base of the 
Dunderburg and on October 7, appeared before the forts. The militia 
of the district (about 600 in number, hastily called in the day pre- 
vious) united with the garrison, making a most heroic defense, fight- 
ing against superior numbers until twilight, when they gave way and 
made a scattered retreat, leaving about 300 of their number in killed, 
wounded and prisoners. 

In this encounter Colonel WoodhulPs regiment suffered severely, 
but in this, as in succeeding events, he was a conspicuous leader. 

After the massacre of the inhabitants at Minisink by the Indians, 
July 22, 1779, detachments from WoodhulFs, Allison's and Hathorn's 
regiments were immediately sent to guard the frontier from further 
incursion. 

In his report to Governor Clinton, Colonel Hathorn wrote: "I 
have acquiesced with Colonel Woodhull in ordering one-eighth of our 
Eegiments to Minisink as a temporary guard until your Excellency's 
pleasure is known on the subject." 

Colonel Woodhull continued in active service until the close of 
the war, and afterward became prominent in the political affairs of 
Orange County. He was a graduate of Yale College, and well qualified 
for the various positions of trust he was called upon to fill. 

He was a member of the State Convention that ratified the Federal 
Constitution, June 17, 1788; and a member of the first Senate, being 
associated with Philip Livingston, John Morin Scott, William Floyd, 
Abraham Yates, Jr., Pierre Van Cortland, Jonathan Lawrence, and 
other distinguished men of that period. (See Whittemore's "Heroes 
of the American Revolution") 

In 1753 he married Hester, daughter of Nathaniel Du Bois. They 
had four sons and three daughters. 

He died in Orange County, New York, February 14, 1795. 

(See Genealogy, No. 26.) 



BIOGEAPHICAL SKETCH X. 

Richard Woodhull, (V.), (Hon.), fifth generation from Richard 
Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the eldest son 
of Richard Woodhull IV., and Margaret Smith. He was born June 
3, 1741. 

He was one of his Majesty's Justices of the Court of Common 
Pleas in 1763. 

He is credited with having first built and owned "Brighton 



310 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



House" at Perth Amboy, as a residence. New Jersey records show- 
that this could not have been, as said Colonial Mansion was used by 
the Proprietors of the Province of New Jersey, as an official residence. 

It is possible, that Richard Woodhull may have occupied it from 
1771 to 1774, between the time of its occupancy by Chief Justice 
Smyth and Governor William Franklin, but so far as is known 
"Brighton House" did not become private property until after the 
Revolutionary War. 

Richard Woodhull married, July 11, 1768, Sarah, daughter of 
Richard Miller and Dorothy Woodhull, of Miller's Place, Long Island. 

He died January 16, 1774. 

(See Genealogy, No. 41.) 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XI. 

William Woodhull, (Rev.), fifth generation from Richard Wod- 
hull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the eldest son of 
the Hon. John Woodhull and Elizabeth Smith, of Miller's Place, Long 
Island. 

He was born December 3, 1741; was graduated from the College 
of New Jersey (now Princeton University) in 1764, and studied theol- 
ogy with that eminent divine, the Rev. Samuel Buell of East Hamp- 
ton, Long Island. 

He was a signer of the "Associate's Oath" in 1775; and a Chair- 
man of the "Joint Committee of Safety" at Brookhaven, in 1776. 

He filled the pulpit at Brookhaven, Long Island, and in Septem- 
ber, 1768, accepted a call from the Black River (now Chester, Morris 
County, New Jersey) congregation. 

He travelled from Long Island to Chester on horseback, his wife 
and child riding on the horse behind him. His pastorate was a brief 
one, for in the course of a few years, he was forced to give up preach- 
ing owing to a weakness of the throat. He however continued to be 
of service to the community in which he lived, and occupied more 
than one position of honor and importance. 

He became a Judge of the Circuit Court of New Jersey, and 
taught a classical school until the breaking out of the Revolutionary 
War. He was renowned for his patriotism having "preached it from 
the pulpit," as well as "repeatedly representing his people in the 
Provincial Congress." 

In 1783 the Presbytery of New York reported that they had left 
out the name of the Rev. William Woodhull from their list of mem- 
bers, because on account of feeble health he had relinquished his 
ministerial duties. 

The Synod, however, deeming this to be an insufficient reason, 
directed his name to be restored to the roll. 

One who has read his extant sermons declares them to be ably and 
agreeably written. He was a man who did much to mold the senti- 
ment and thought of the community in which he lived.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XII. 

Ebenezek Woodhull, (Captain), fourth generation from Richard 
Wodhull L, Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the fourth 
son of Nathaniel Wodhull and Sarah Smith. He was born at Mastic, 
Long Island, February 2, 1742. 

In January, 1776, he was commissioned Adjutant of a Regiment 
of Minute Men, and in May of the same year, was made Captain of 
Light Horse Troop, Cornwall Precinct Regiment. 

He was an influential citizen of Orange County, New York, hav- 
ing lived many years in Blooming Grove, in that County. 

He was a brave and capable officer and, above all else, a true- 
hearted patriot, as were his brothers, General Nathaniel and Colonel 
Jesse Woodhull. 

"Being one of the early settlers of Blooming Grove, he took so 
active a part during the Revolutionary War, that he incurred the 
hatred of the notorious British spy, Claudius Smith, who threatened 
his life and even went so far as to visit Captain Woodhull's house 
with the intent to kill him. 

"Upon this occasion, the redoubtable Captain was fortunately 
away at Clarkston. To veut his spite, the disappointed spy took the 
occasion to carry off all the valuables he could lay hands upon, 
swearing he would 'kill him yet.' 

"Mrs. Woodhull (who was Abigail, daughter of Hezekiah Howell), 
had fortunately been warned by a faithful slave of the approach of 
the marauder and his men, and managed to hide a silver tankard 
under the sleeping baby in its cradle, as well as to slip some silver 
spoons into a convenient pocket. 

"When Claudius Smith and his comrades broke into the house 
they discovered a spoon that had been overlooked, and demanding 
the rest of the silver, ordered the lady of the house to 'take up that 
child/ 

"Mrs. Woodhull acquiesced, exclaiming in true woman fashion, 
'my tankard is gone!' The robbers also took everything in the way of 
jewelry that the house contained, excepting a little carnelian ring, 
which was overlooked. 

"When the men began ransacking the clothing she pleaded that 
her scarlet cloak be left her. The spy cavalierly remarked, 'Put a 



312 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



bed blanket round yon/ When Captain Woodhull's little daughter 
Fanny asked if he was going to take her 'new calico frock' the spy 
replied that he would not, if she would show him which it was. 

"The Captain's uniform was next demanded, this his wife tried 
to save by stratagem, but a slave, fearing for the life of her mistress, 
said, 'You know missy you put it between the feather beds/ 

"Just before the men left the house, Mrs. Woodhull was ordered 
not to look out the window, a command which of course she did not 
obey, and by the clear moonlight easily saw them ride off in the 
direction of Major Strong's house, and before long, heard the fatal 
gun shots which ended that brave man's career. 

"Claudius was afterward captured, and when on trial in the town 
of Goshen did his utmost to keep Mrs. Woodhull from testifying 
against him; not succeeding in this he glared at her fiercely, exclaim- 
ing with bravado, 'You never saw me before.' Remembering the 
Tory spy's handsome attire, especially the rich lace ruffles at his 
wrists, the lady pointed to his hand-cuffs and quietly remarked, 'Oh, 
yes I have, but you wore different ruffles at your wrists/ 

"The spy was captured on Long Island, from which place he was 
taken to Fishkill Landing, and from thence to Goshen Jail, by Sheriff 
Isaac Mcoll, escorted by some of Captain WoodhulPs Light Horse 
Troop. 

"Mrs. Woodhull's testimony, it seems, convicted the British spy, 
and it is rather odd to reflect that he was hung, not for the murder 
of Major Strong, but for the robbery of Captain Woodhull's house 
and other robberies." 

It is supposed that Captain Ebenezer Woodhull was a Presby- 
terian, at any rate we find the names of two of his sons, Thomas 
and Fletcher, among the contributors to the Presbyterian parsonage 
at Blooming Grove, and in those days most vigorous Whigs were 
staunch Presbyterians. 

Captain Woodhull died October 4th, 1803, leaving a widow and 
nine children.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XIII. 

John" Woodhull, (D. D.), fifth generation from Richard Wod- 
hull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was born at Miller's 
Place, Long Island, January 26, 1744. 

He was the second son of the Hon. John Woodhull and Elizabeth, 
daughter of Major William Henry Smith, of the "Tangier Smith" 
family. 

John Woodhull prepared for college under his maternal uncle, 
the Rev. Caleb Smith, of Newark Mountain, now Orange, New Jersey, 
and in 1766, received the degree of A. B., from the College of New 
Jersey (now Princeton University.)

WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 313 



At this time Samuel Finley, D. D., was President of the College. 
From Princeton the young student went to Fagg's Manor, Chester 
County, Pa., where he pursued his theological studies under the Rev. 
John Blair, and was licensed to preach, by the Presbytery of New 
Castle, August, 1768. 

Several urgent calls were received, from among which, John 
Woodhull chose that of the Presbyterian Church at Leacock, Lan- 
caster County, Pa. 

He was ordained and installed August 1, 1770. Upon that oc- 
casion, the Rev. Joseph Montgomery preached the sermon, the Rev. 
Robert Smith, D. D., presided, and the Rev. Alexander McDowell 
gave the charge to pastor and congregation. 

Mr. Woodhull was the successor of the Rev. Robert Smith, D. D., 
an eminent theologian, and second Moderator of the General As- 
sembly. 

John Woodhull married, May 28, 1772, Sarah, only child of Cap- 
tain George Spoff ord, of the Royal Navy. 

Sarah Spofford Woodhull was a woman of fine mind and noble 
character; an ideal pastor's wife, full of zeal and helpfulness. 

In the first year of his pastorate at Leacock, the Rev. John Wood- 
hull purchased 138 acres of land from Mr. David Orner, upon which 
he built "a large, substantial, convenient, and for that day, an elegant 
house." 

Since that time the house has been added to, but the part built 
by him is exactly as when the Rev. John Woodhull occupied it. This 
house is now in possession of Mrs. Steele, widow of Captain John 
Steele. 

For ten years John Woodhull preached at Leacock, the beloved 
pastor of a loyal and united congregation. He was "a strenuous 
Whig," and with a number of other patriotic men, signed "a remark- 
able petition to the Pennsylvania Assembly, December 31, 1777, 
praying that all of the troops of the State be ordered out." 

In the early part of the Revolutionary War, inspired by the patri- 
otic fervor of their pastor, all the able-bodied men of the congrega- 
tion went into the field, accompanied by the Rev. John Woodhull, as 
Chaplain. 

He was Chaplain of the 7th Battalion 1777 Lancaster Militia, 
Colonel John Boyd. 

Owing to a typographical error in the printed records, his name 
appears as John Woodwell, but in the original archives, according 
to the late William H. Egle, M. D., State Librarian at Harrisburg, 
the name was John Woodhull. (See letter at close of sketch.) 

He was in the Germantown Campaign, and also in the Jerseys. 
On the occasion of the Battle of Monmouth, when a cannoneer fell 
near where he stood, John Woodhull assisted in serving the cannon. 
The authority for this statement was the late Colonel William C. 
Alexander, whose father, the Rev. Archibald Alexander, D. D., of 
Princeton, was a personal friend of John Woodhull's. 



314 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



A number of interesting letters from camp are in the possession 
of Thenford Woodhull, of Brooklyn, New York, while his sword and 
sword-belt are in the possession of another great-grandson, John 
Tennent Woodhull, of Camden, New Jersey. 

(For "Letters from Camp," see Genealogical Appendix, Note X.) 

The funeral sermon of the unfortunate Captain John Huddy, who 
had been ruthlessly murdered by the British, was preached by Chap- 
lain John Woodhull to a large concourse of people, some accounts say 
from the hotel piazza in the town of Freehold, New Jersey. 

Later, he also preached the funeral sermon of the Hon. Nathaniel 
Scudder, M. D., Colonel First Monmouth Kegiment, who met his 
death in an engagement near Shrewsbury. The text chosen for the 
sad occasion was from the words, "And all Judea and Jerusalem 
mourned for Josiah." 

Colonel Scudder was buried with the honors of war, in the Old 
Tennent Churchyard. It was said of this man "few have fallen in 
this country that were so useful or so generally mourned in his 
death." 

In 1779, much to the regret of his Leacock congregation, Eev. 
John Woodhull accepted a call to the Presbyterian Church, near 
Freehold, New Jersey, for many years known as the "Old Tennent 
Church." 

He succeeded the celebrated William Tennent, who had preached 
for forty years in that church. Dr. WoodhulPs pastorate was from 
1779 to 1824, a period of forty-four years. 

In 1778, John Woodhull received the degree of Doctor of Divinity 
from Yale College, which, says one, "Was a distinction rarely con- 
ferred at that day, and more rarely perhaps by Yale than by any 
other College in the country." 

For many years, in connection with his duties as pastor and 
preacher, Dr. Woodhull conducted a very successful grammar school. 
He also prepared young men for the ministry, many of whom became 
useful and beloved pastors. 

This work he carried on until the establishment of Princeton 
Theological Seminary, of which he was a director, and most of the 
time Vice-President of the Board; until his death at an advanced 
age, he took the deepest interest in the welfare of the Seminary. 

Among the young men who prepared for the ministry under Dr. 
Woodhull were the following: Eobert Barkley, for years pastor of 
the Bound Brook Church; Hollo way Whitefield Hunt and his brother 
Gardner, both of Sussex; Joseph Kue, of Pennington; Joseph Camp- 
bell, D. D., of Huntington; Cyrus Gildersleeve, who preached at 
Wilkesbarre; Peter Fish, of Long Island; Matthew La Kue Perrine, 
D. D., pastor at Madison, and later of Spring Street Church, New 
York; also one of the professors of the Auburn Theological Semi- 
nary. George Spofford Woodhull, of Cranbury; Selah Strong Wood- 
hull, D. D., pastor of the Dutch Eeformed Church of Brooklyn; 
Isaac Y. Brown, D. D., pastor of the church at Lawrenceville, New

Jersey, and founder of the successful preparatory school in that 
place. Rev. John McDowell, D. D., pastor of Elizabethtown church 
and of the Central and Spring Garden Church, of Philadelphia; Jacob 
T. Field and Jacob Kirkpatrick, D. D., Joseph Shafer, D. D., and 
the Rev. George Spofford Bergen, D. D. 

John Woodhull, D. D., was one of the earliest members of the 
Cliosophie Society of the College of New Jersey. The Well-Meaning 
Society disbanded in the year 1769, and re-organized as The 
Cliosophie, June, 1770, the members of the former always having been 
recognized as belonging to the latter society. 

He was a Trustee of the College of New Jersey for forty-four 
years, and upon one occasion, during the short absence of Dr. John 
Witherspoon, was Acting President. 

Amidst his varied duties as preacher, pastor, classical teacher and 
theological instructor, Dr. Woodhull kept up a deep and lively interest 
in affairs of State and Union. 

As a preacher he is said to have been exceedingly popular, so 
much so that "some pulpits in the vicinity of Freehold continued 
vacant for years, the congregations being satisfied with quarterly or 
half yearly visits from him." 

Rev. John Woodhull, D. D., was Moderator of the last Synod of 
New York and Philadelphia, May, 1788, and the third Moderator of 
the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United 
States. 

The following interesting bit of reminiscence is from an Historical 
Sermon by the Rev. P. J. Timlow, D. D.: 

"In the winter of 1818-19, while I was yet a student at Princeton, 
though licensed to preach, I went at the suggestion of Dr. Miller to 
Freehold, New Jersey, to pass a Sabbath with Dr. Woodhull. It was 
my first acquaintance with him, and a letter from Dr. Miller was 
my introduction. 

"I reached the hospitable, but rather humble dwelling (the his- 
toric 'Old Tennent Parsonage') on Saturday evening. He and his 
wife gave me a cordial welcome and I soon found that I was to be 
amply repaid for my journey. 

"The house, which he occupied, stood, I think, on an open field; 
and he quickly told me that it was on or near the spot on which 
was fought the famous Battle of Monmouth. 

"It was the house in which William Tennent had lived before 
him, and where Whitefield had often been a guest; and I remember 
his saying that when something of which he was speaking occurred, 
i Whitefield sat there, and Tennent sat there/ 

"His reminiscences of the olden time, and especially of the events 
of the Revolutionary War, seemed inexhaustible; and what rendered 
them the more interesting was, that he scarcely spoke of anything of 
which he was not himself a sharer or a witness." 

Dr. Woodhull has been described as "a man of fine appearance, 
about six feet in height, erect to the last, very dignified and of an 
attractive benignity of countenance and manner." 



316 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 

He was a great favorite with the young people of his congregation, 
and beloved by all. Many anecdotes of Dr. Woodhull are still extant 
about Freehold. 

The Spring previous to his death, Dr. Woodhull attended the 
Anniversary of the American Bible Society, and was one of the 
speakers of the occasion. 

The Eev. Dr. McDowell who was present, said, "he attracted the 
marked attention of the audience. He spoke with an elevation of 
voice and distinctness and earnestness that surprised the audience, 
and it was the most popular speech made on that occasion." 

Dr. Woodhull was nearly eighty-one years of age when he died, 
December 22, 1824. His illness was of short duration and he retained 
his vigor of body and mind to the end. 

He was buried in Old Tennent Church-yard where a monument 
was erected to his memory by his devoted congregation. 

The Eev. Isaac Brown a former theological student of Dr. Wood- 
hull's preached the funeral sermon. Among other beautiful tributes 
to Dr. Woodhull's character was the following: 

"In condescension, meekness, charity, and benevolence to the 
afflicted, his life was an open volume of instruction." 

Dr. Woodhull had six children four of whom survived him. His 
widow, Mrs. Sarah Spofford Woodhull, died three years later; they 
had lived together over fifty years.

Mr. Jordan is right in his surmises that John Woodwell chaplain

at Valley Forge, in 1777 and 1778. He was in the Germantown cam-

cantonment at Valley Forge in the winter of 1777 and 1778, as stated.

Abeaham Woodhull, (Hon.), fifth generation from Richard Wod- 
hull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was born October 7, 
1750. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 317 



He was the youngest child of Kichard Woodhull and Margaret 
Smith. He inherited the paternal estate at Setauket, Long Island, 
and at his death left to his grandson, Eichard Lawrence Woodhull, 
an estate of more than three hundred acres. 

He set his slaves free and gave to them homes of their own, 
years before they were legally freed. He was a great Presbyte- 
rian and "occupied a pew of authority" in the old church, doing 
much toward building the "new" or present Presbyterian Church 
at Setauket. 

He was a man of integrity, punctual and very precise in his busi- 
ness relations, and filled numerous important positions, being for 
many years a Magistrate in Setauket, and also a Judge of the Court of 
Common Pleas from 1793 to 1799. and "First Judge of Suffolk 
County, Long Island" from 1799 to 1810. 

His first wife was Mary, daughter of Obadiah Smith; his second, 
Lydia, daughter of James Terry. 

He had two daughters and a son by his first wife.

Ebenezek Woodhull, fifth generation from Kichard Wodhull L, 
Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the youngest child of 
Colonel Jesse Woodhull and Hester Du Bois, of Orange County, New 
York. 

He was born January 23, 1772. 

He settled at Herkimer, Herkimer County, New York, in the Mo- 
hawk Valley, about the year 1804, upon a tract of land purchased of 
Peter Gansvoort and Jeremiah Van Eensselaer.

He married Sarah, daughter of Hezekiah Tallcott, first Judge of 
Herkimer County, New York. 

They had seven children, three sons and four daughters. 

(See Genealogy, No. 79.) 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XVII. 

George Spofford Woodhull, (Eev.), sixth generation from Rich- 
ard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the eldest 
son of the Rev. John Woodhull, D. D., and Sarah Spofford. He was 
born at Leacock, Lancaster County, Pa., March 31, 1773. 

He was graduated from the College of New Jersey (now Princeton 
University) in 1790, after which he studied law one year and medicine 
two years and then, it is said, through the influence of a sermon 
preached by his father, determined to enter the ministry. 

He was licensed by the Presbytery of New Brunswick to preach 
the gospel, and was installed pastor of the church at Cranbury, New 
Jersey, June 6, 1798. In the following year he married Gertrude, the 
eldest daughter of Colonel John Neilson, of New Brunswick, New 
Jersey. 

For twenty-two years he preached at Cranbury, and it was said 
that "his ministry was faithful, noiseless and dignified/' In 1820 he 
accepted a call to the Presbyterian Church at Princeton, New Jer- 
sey, where he was installed July 5, of the same year. 

His venerable father, the Rev. John Woodhull, D. D., of Free- 
hold, New Jersey, presided. The Rev. Isaac V. Brown, D. D., of 
Lawrenceville, New Jersey, preached the installation sermon. The 
charge to the pastor was given by the Rev. Archibald Alexander, 
D. D., the charge to the people being given by the Rev. Samuel 
Miller, D. D. 

The Princeton pastorate was of twelve years' duration and "was 
marked by a greater increase in the church membership than that of 
any of his predecessors." 

He was a man well known for his public spirit and was possessed 
of a beautiful Christian character. His father once said of him, 
"I have no recollection of ever having occasion to reprove him in his 
life." 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 319 



In April, 1811, he was one of the little band who gathered in 
Princeton and founded the New Jersey Bible Society, in which society 
he kept up a deep interest throughout his life. 

He it was who first suggested Bible Class instruction in churches, 
in 1815, having successfully tried it in his own. This wise suggestion 
was recommended to all the churches by the General Assembly and 
was finally introduced throughout the entire Presbyterian organi- 
zation. 

He practiced "entire abstinence" long before the Temperance Re- 
f orm commenced, and, following his earnest efforts to abolish the use 
of ardent spirits, in the year 1818, the General Assembly made solemn 
recommendations to all church officers upon the subject. This was 
eight years before the formation of the American Temperance Society. 
A temperance pledge bearing date as far back as 1815, and signed by 
several members of his congregation was found among his papers 
after his death. 

He was a Trustee of the College of New Jersey for many years and 
was one of the Incorporators of the Board of Trustees of Princeton 
Theological Seminary, and was a member of that Board from 1822, 
the date of the incorporation until his death. 

In 1832 he resigned his Princeton pastorate and accepted a call 
to Middletown Point (now Matawan), New Jersey. 

He died there December 25, 1834, after a brief pastorate of about 
two years. 

In 1835, the Eev. Samuel Miller, D. D., preached a sermon in 
memoriam, at the request of his former Princeton congregation. He 
paid a beautiful and fitting tribute to him in the following words: 

"His history is his portrait. It has been my lot within the last 
forty years of my life to be acquainted with many hundred ministers 
of the Gospel of various denominations, and with not a few of them to* 
be on what might be called intimate terms, and although I have 
known a number of more splendid, of more impressive eloquence than 
your late pastor, yet in the great moral qualities which go to form the 
good man, the exemplary Christian, the diligent and untiring pastor, 
the benevolent neighbor and citizen, and the dignified, polished, per- 
fect gentleman, I have seldom known his equal, and I think never on 
the whole his superior." 

His was an eminently blameless life, a remarkably successful min- 
istry. One has said of him that he was "calm and holy to the last." 

The Rev. George Spofford Woodhull left a widow and three sons.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XVIII. 

Richard Millee Woodhull, sixth generation from Richard Wod- 
hull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the only son of the 
Hon. Richard Woodhull V., and Sarah Miller. 



320 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



He was born in the year 1774. Was a New York merchant, a 
man of intelligence and full of ambition. 

He purchased thirteen acres of land in the region of Brooklyn, 
and laid it out in city lots, naming the place Williamsburgh, after his 
friend, Colonel Williams, IT. S. Engineer, who surveyed the land. 

Richard Miller Woodhull also established a ferry, a need which he 
fully appreciated. 

Later, in the year 1812, Thomas Morrell of Newtown, Long Island, 
also obtained a grant for a ferry, and succeeded with his venture. 
Woodhull having financially embarrassed himself with his too large 
undertaking, at a period when the district was neither prepared nor 
populated sufficiently to buy up the laid out Borough lots in the new 
town of Williamsburgh, the property passed out of his hands, first 
into the possession of his father-in-law, James Horner Maxwell, of 
New York City, and finally out of the family altogether. The original 
name of Williamsburgh was however preserved. 

Says John M. Stiles, in his "History of The Town of Williams- 
burgh," (included in the "History of Brooklyn,") "WoodhulFs and 
Maxwell's experience was that which is common to men who think in 
advance of their time, but they will ever be mentioned with respect 
as the fathers of the town." 

Eichard Miller Woodhull married, March 24, 1810, Marian Mar- 
garet, daughter of James Horner Maxwell and Catherine Yan Zandt 
(daughter of Jacobus Yan Zandt, the Revolutionary patriot.) 

He died November 3, 1815, in New York City and was buried in 
the Maxwell family vault in Old Trinity Church-yard. 

He left a widow and two children. 

(See Genealogy, No. 120.) 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XIX. 

Selah Strong Woodhull, (Rev.), sixth generation from Richard 
Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the only son 
of James Woodhull and Keturah Strong. He was born August 4, 
1786, in the city of New York, where his father was a merchant. 

At the age of twelve he entered the Freshman Class of Columbia 
College, New York, but later, in 1798 entered Yale. 

One of his classmates wrote of him: 

"He was the youngest in the class, and hardly advanced enough 
to appreciate fully the value of thorough scholarship; still he ap- 
peared well in the recitation room, showed that he acquired his 
lessons easily, and possessed a mind capable of great acquisition. 

"Had he been sixteen or eighteen when he entered College, he 
would probably have ranked among the very best scholars of the 
class." 

He graduated in 1802 at the age of sixteen. Soon after, he began 
the study of Law in New York City, but during a visit to his uncle,

the Eev. John Woodhull, D. D., of Freehold, New Jersey, his relig- 
ious impressions became so deep that he felt impelled to relinquish 
the idea of becoming a lawyer and look toward the ministry as his 
life profession. 

He studied theology under Dr. Woodhull and such was the re- 
markable precocity of his mind, that he was licensed to preach by 
the Presbytery of New Brunswick, New Jersey, in his nineteenth 
year (1805). 

He settled at Bound Brook, New Jersey, for a year. In 1806 
he was pastor of the First Reformed Dutch Church, of Brooklyn, 
N. Y., and the same year had conferred upon him the degree of 
D. D., from Yale College. 

He was for many years the able and indefatigable Secretary of 
the American Bible Society. 

In 1825, he resigned his Brooklyn pastorate, and also the* Secre- 
taryship of the Bible Society, to accept the Professorship of Ecclesi- 
astical History, Church Government, and Pastoral Theology, in the 
Theological Seminary of the Reformed Dutch Church at New Bruns- 
wick. 

He was also Professor of Metaphysical Philosophy, and Philos- 
ophy of the Human Mind, in Rutgers College, New Brunswick. 

He married, November 10, 1807, Cornelia Yan Cleve, of Prince- 
ton, New Jersey. 

His useful and promising career was ended by his death, February 
27, 1826. 

The funeral sermon was preached by the Rev. Dr. Brownlee, a 
portion of which was published in the Magazine of the Reformed 
Dutch Church for December, 1826. 

It is remarkable that fifty-two sermons that had never been 
preached were found among his papers after his death. 

He left a widow and five daughters. 

(See Genealogy, No. 150.) 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XX. 

John Tennent Woodhull, (M. D.), sixth generation from Rich- 
ard Wodhull L, Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the second 
son of the Rev. John Woodhull, D. D., and Sarah Spofford. 

He was born August 24, 1786, in the Old Tennent Parsonage, 
near Freehold, New Jersey. He received a classical education from 
his father, after which he graduated in 1809, from the Medical De- 
partment of the University of Pennsylvania, and later, in 1812, re- 
ceived the degree of A. M. from the College of New Jersey (now 
Princeton University). 

He married, January 22, 1812, Anne, daughter of William Wikoff 
and Hannah Scudder. 



322 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



For half a century he enjoyed a high reputation in Monmouth 
County, New Jersey, as a physician of skill and ability. 

His life was notably pure, and he was generous almost to a fault; 
he was a man who detested shams, being a hearty sympathizer in all 
that elevates and improves the condition of humanity, which is at- 
tested by the fact that he freed his faithful slaves some years before 
slavery became illegal, and did all in his power to educate and uplift 
them. 

From 1821 to 1827 he was a member of the General Assembly of 
the State of New Jersey. He was also a State Senator in 1825, and 
a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. 

In politics he was a staunch Whig, and to the end of his life 
took the liveliest interest in the political affairs of the day. 

In appearance he was above six feet in height, wore his iron gray 
hair in a queue, and was distinguished for his dignified and courtly 
bearing. He possessed a vigorous intellect which he retained to the 
last. 

The Bible and Shakespeare were his favorite books, and no man 
knew them more intimately. 

For many years Dr. Woodhull was an elder in the historic Old 
Tennent Church, where his father preached for nearly half a century. 

He died on Thanksgiving Day, 1869, at the home of his eldest son, 
the Hon. George Spofford Woodhull, of Camden, New Jersey. 

Two daughters and six sons survived him. 

(See Genealogy, No. 138.) 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXI. 

James Haines Woodhull, seventh generation from Richard 
Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the eldest son 
of William Woodhull and Ruth Haines. He was born at Roxbury 
(now Chester), Morris County, New Jersey, March 28, 1791. 

As far as can be learned, his early life* was spent in and about 
his birthplace. 

He married, April 4, 1811, Harriet, daughter of John and Mary 
Eastburn, of New York City. 

It is evident from such letters as exist that for several years he 
resided in the City of New York, and that on or about the date of 
his second marriage to Eliza D. Campbell, which occurred February 
12, 1824, he removed to Newark, New Jersey. 

Very little is known of his business career until about the years 
1829-30, when having been in the grocery business in Newark, New 
Jersey, he failed "because he trusted everybody." 

His second wife died July 16, 1829, leaving three children. 

The two journals which he wrote in the years 1829 and 1830 
contain some interesting facts which show that he was a most saintly 
and religious man. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 323 



The journals referred to were written mostly on Sundays, and 
were made up almost exclusively of comments on sermons he had 
heard, or reflections on his own religious experiences. Most of these 
seem too sacred, and personal, for publication, but one or two refer- 
ences may be of interest as showing the character of the man. 

Under date of May 8, 1830, he writes: 

"Oh my soul, to which of those worlds art thou hastening? Thou 
hast professed to be on thy journey to the Heavenly Kingdom. 
Art thou in the right way? What are thy evidences? Examine 
carefully and faithfully thy letter of instructions. A mistake here 
may be fatal to thy everlasting happiness." 

Under date of June 14, 1830, there appears this entry: 

"This day in company with my Christian Brother Dougherty 
have taken a delightful ride to Paterson, which however brings to 
my mind some most painful circumstances. I have been but once to 
that place, before today, and that was in the year 1822, during the 
prevalence of the yellow fever in the City of New York, where I 
then lived. I and my dear wife were induced, almost against our 
wills and against the dictates of our consciences, to go on the Sab- 
bath Day. My heart sinks of that sin, and the judgments which 
immediately followed, for in about six weeks, three out of the four 
of us who were heads of families, were numbered with the dead, and 
I was raised, as it were, from the grave. I was taken with the yellow 
fever in about two weeks after that visit. Oh Lord, how great is 
thy goodness towards me in sparing my life, when thou mightest so 
justly have cut me off." 

Under date of July 3, 1830, he gives expression to sentiments 
which seem particularly interesting as forecasting the Emancipation 
Proclamation of thirty years later. 

He says, in speaking of a certain Colonization Society for the 
negroes: 

"How surprising, that we who so highly prize liberty, should 
continue to oppress our brother man and hold him in bondage 
a thousandfold worse than that for which we fought and bled. 
Oh, Lord, awaken this people to see and do their duty in this 
matter." 

On August 1, 1831, he married his third wife, Adeline Baldwin, 
daughter of Ananias and Elizabeth Baldwin. 

Shortly after his third marriage, he became one of the organizers 
of the American Eire Insurance Company of Newark, New Jersey, 
and for the remainder of his life was connected with that Company 
as its Secretary. 

He was one of the organizers and an Elder in the First Congrega- 
tional Church, of the City of Newark, and throughout his life was 
a man of broad mind, and beloved by all who knew him. 

He died at Newark, New Jersey, January 31, 1873, leaving a 
widow, one son and a daughter.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXII. 

Caleb Smith Woodhull, (Hon.), sixth generation from Richard 
Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the fourth 
son of Merritt Smith Woodhull and Mary Davis. He was born 
February 26, 1792, at Miller's Place, Long Island. 

He pursued his classical course preparatory to College, under the 
Rev. Herman Daggett, of Brookhaven, Long Island. He entered Yale 
College in 1808, at the age of fifteen, then under the Presidency of 
Dr. Dwight, and graduated with the honors of his class in 1811. 

He taught for a few months after his graduation and then com- 
menced the study of law, with George W. Strong, a New York 
lawyer of high repute. 

He was a private in the War of 1812, a member of the Militia 
in New York City, which were the guardians of the city, but saw no 
active service. He continued in the Militia for many years, holding 
several commissions during that period. Owing to his disapproval 
of certain methods, then in vogue, he resigned his commission in 
1830, urging, at the same time, the necessity for, and strongly 
recommending, a system that was afterwards adopted. 

In 1817 he was admitted to the New York Bar, as Counsellor-at- 
Law. He was a warm advocate of the Whig party, and at the Char- 
ter election in the Spring of 1836, was chosen to represent the second 
ward in the Common Council, and was continued by his constituents 
a member of that body for eight successive years. 

In 1843 he was President of the Board of Aldermen and of the 
Common Council, and was elected Mayor of the City of New York 
in the Spring of 1849, which office he held until January, 1851, when 
he retired from political life. 

During the term of his Mayoralty, this country was visited by 
Jenny Lind, the celebrated Swedish singer, and he was her only 
adviser as to her many charities bestowed upon the poor and needy 
of the great city. 

During this time the famous singer spent an evening at the 
hospitable home of Mr. Woodhull, the memory of which is treasured 
by his children to this day. General Louis Kossuth was another 
distinguished visitor to this home. 

The "Astor Place Riot" was an event in his political career which 
called down both censure and high praise, censure because he was 
thought to have been too humane in not sooner giving the order to 
fire upon the surging mob of maddened men. He however received 
many congratulatory letters for the course pursued upon that mem- 
orable night, among which was one from Queen Victoria, thanking 
him for protecting one of her British subjects. 

Caleb Smith Woodhull was for many years Chairman of the Law 
Committee, during which period many measures of importance were 
recommended or defeated by his strong influence. 



WOODHTJLL GENEALOGY. 325 



In 1844 he was chosen by the political friends of Henry Clay, 
one of the Presidential Electors for New York State, and with the 
exception of the Hon. John A. Collier, received the highest number 
of votes. 

"He was a man of broad political outlook, and possessed not only 
the unshaken confidence and esteem of his friends, but the high 
regard of his political opponents as well. 

"His sound judgment, integrity and talents made him a man of 
great usefulness in his generation." 

Although never very robust, he was remarkably active throughout 
his life. He was tall, slender, and very erect. 

Until his marriage he was a Presbyterian, after which he attended 
the Collegiate Church, in Fulton St., New York. 

In 1818, he married Lavinia Nostrander, who died within a few 
months. In 1830, he married Harriet, daughter of Abraham Fardon, 
of New York City. 

He died at his birth-place, Miller's Place, Long Island, July 16, 
1866, leaving a son and daughter. 

(See Genealogy, No. 144.) 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXIII. 

Gilbert Smith Woodhull, (M. D.), sixth generation from Rich- 
ard Wodhull L, Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the young- 
est child of the Rev. John Woodhull, D. £>., and Sarah SpofTord. 
He was born near Freehold, New Jersey, January 11, 1794. 

His literary studies were pursued under his father, who was a suc- 
cessful teacher, as well as preacher. He was graduated from the 
College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) in 1823. His 
medical preceptors were Dr. John Tennent Woodhull (his brother), 
and Dr. Hosack, of New York. 

He was graduated from Jefferson Medical College, after which he 
acquired a very extensive practice in the townships of Freehold, 
Manalapan, and Upper Freehold. 

He was a man of fine personal appearance, prepossessing address, 
and manner unusually pleasing and magnetic, combining dignity with 
a genuine bonhomie. 

He was almost a Centaur in his out-of-door life, always in the 
saddle, sitting his horse with inimitable ease and grace; riding at 
a slashing gait; shortening distances by crossing fields and fences, 
of great endurance, a stranger to fatigue. 

The close of a morning's ride would frequently find him forty 
miles away from his starting point. 

Inheriting considerable wealth from his father, he practiced rather 
from love of his profession than the desire of pecuniary gain. 



326 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



Eminently a pious man, he was chosen a Killing Elder in the 
Presbyterian Church at Perrineville, New Jersey, of which his nephew 
was pastor. 

He married, November 25, 1817, Charlotte, daughter of William 
Wikoff, of Monmouth County, New Jersey. 

He was admitted a member of the Monmouth District Medical 
Society in the year 1818. In 1822-3 he was elected President of the 
County and in 1825 of the State Medical Society. 

This brilliant man died in his thirty-seventh year, leaving a widow, 
three daughters and a son. 

(See Genealogy, No. 139.) 

He was interred in the burial ground attached to the Presbyterian 
Church at Perrineville, where a substantial monument was erected 
to his memory, upon which is inscribed this appropriate quotation: 

"I have fought a good fight, 
I have finished my course. 
I have kept the faith. 

"Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, 
which the Lord the righteous Judge shall give me at that day, and 
not to me only, but unto all them that love his appearing." 

(See "History of the Monmouth District Medical Society.") 



BIOGEAPHICAL SKETCH XXIV. 

Samuel Woodhull, sixth generation from Kichard Wodhull I., 
Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the third son of Abraham 
Cooper Woodhull and Eunice Sturges. He was born at Fairfield, 
Connecticut, January 5, 1800. 

Afflicted with deafness at nine years of age, an elder sister took 
it upon herself to give him an education. 

In later years books were to him a source of deep pleasure. His- 
tory and poetry seem to have been his greatest solace. He also 
wielded a facile pen, and some of his published writings show a 
deeply thoughtful, tender nature. 

In 1830, in a bit of blank verse occur these lines, uttering the 
longing for free libraries: 

" See'st thou our youth ? and dost thou hear them plead ? 
They long for knowledge, but no books to read 
Then found a Library, rich, choice and free. 
Sure all will join in such Philanthropy, 
And thus these youth much Knowledge will obtain 
And wiser be when future years they gain." 

Owing to his deafness, by which he was greatly hampered in the 
choice of a business career, he took up the tailoring trade. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 327 



In 1848, he took the long and toilsome journey to the California 
gold-diggings, where he remained several years absent from his family, 
but returned at length, little the richer except in experience and 
travel. 

He was a most exemplary man, of kindly disposition, a consistent 
Christian and a Presbyterian, esteemed and loved by all who knew 
him. 

In 1823, he married Mary Ann Bull, of New Haven, Connecticut. 
They had six children. He died April 14, 1869. 

(See Genealogy, No. 177.) 

The following lines from the pen of Samuel Woodhull will be of 
special interest to his descendants. It was written at North Fork 
American Eiver, California, May 9, 1851: 

TO MY WIFE. 

'Tis true my love, I said goodbye 
What else could I have said ? 
I knew full well your heart's reply. 
What in your face I read. 

What anguish gushes from the heart 

The quivering lip will tell, 
When " two fond souls " are call'd to part 

And far from each to dwell. 

O, keen and bitter words of woe, 

Goodbye — Farewell — Adieu 
Which could I choose to send a throe, 

In thy kind heart so true ? 

But now 'tis o'er we parted then 

Our hearts were wrung with pain 
But " Hope and Courage makes the man," 

And we may meet again. 

My heart responds most warm with thine 

To pray and hope each day 
No heart can feel more deep than mine 

If near — or far away. 

Yes, feel for you, my Joy my Pride, 

(Our little ones likewise,) 
No earthly bliss — or gold beside, 

So precious in my eyes. 

Hope on — Hope on — the da3^ may come 

When we again shall meet 
When you and home — will be my home 

In love and bliss complete. 

Till then " Goodbye," you'll think of me 
Most kindly and most true ; 
And in return I'll think of thee 
Dear wife and babes — Adieu.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXV. 

Richard Woodhull, (Rev.), sixth generation from Richard Wod- 
hull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was born in Fairfield, 
Connecticut, January 15, 1802. 

He was the youngest child of Abraham Cooper Woodhull and 
Eunice Sturges. His father, a sea captain, lost his life in an acci- 
dent in Boston Harbor when his son was but seventeen months old; 
so from this early age he came under the entire charge of his mother, 
who in this sad loss, was also left in straitened circumstances; 
she was however a woman of strong character, sincere piety, and of 
great industry and energy; this early influence formed her son's 
character for after years. 

During these early years, her judicious instruction, and the read- 
ing of choice books in the evenings, gave him his love of books, and 
under the pastoral care and teachings of Dr. Humphrey, afterwards 
President of Amherst College, his mind and heart were so deeply 
impressed, that the influence of his ministry was never effaced. 

At the age of eighteen he was brought to dedicate himself to 
God, and he gave at once his life of active usefulness in the Cause 
of Christ, and soon had a desire to become a minister. 

Being without the necessary means for his studies, he applied 
to the Education Society of Maine for assistance, and this applica- 
tion being accepted he was enabled to finish his preparatory and 
Collegiate course. It is worthy of mention here, that the money 
paid to him from the Education Society was paid back to that 
Society, both principal and interest. 

Richard Woodhull entered Bowdoin College in 1823, and assisted 
himself pecuniarily by teaching in the town during most of his 
senior year, and graduated in 1827 with high rank in his class. 

After leaving College he entered Princeton Theological Seminary, 
but at the close of the first year, through the advice of President 
Allen, of Bowdoin, he took charge of the Classical Department of 
Bangor Theological Seminary, which position he filled with great 
acceptance until he entered the ministry. 

On August 13, 1829, he was married to Sarah, daughter of William 
Forbes, Esq., of Brookfield, Massachusetts, and Bangor, Maine. 

Their Jife together, of forty-four years, was one of mutual sym- 
pathy and happiness, ten children being born to them. 

In 1830 Mr. Woodhull accepted a call to the Congregational 
Church in Thomaston, Maine, and was ordained their pastor July 7, 
President Allen, of Bowdoin College, preaching the sermon. 

This pastorate was held with fidelity for twenty-four years and 
eight months, and he loved his people. This period was filled with 
study and labor, with sympathy and comfort to those under affliction, 
with instruction in every duty in life and in education; he was a 
great help to this town of sea-faring men, having taught some hun- 
dred, or more, ship masters their navigation.

WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 329 



Besides the merely religious, many an interest, private and public, 
felt his influence. But the field was hard, there had been in it 
elements impossible to harmonize, and the meagre salary was often 
short in payment, making it difficult to meet the common necessities 
of life; this Mr. Woodhull supplemented by teaching a young ladies' 
select school, and also in his writings for publication. 

During his ministry there were three considerable revivals, in 
the years 1834-37 and ; 42, when forty-nine persons were received into 
the church by profession. 

At the close of the Eev. Eichard Woodhull' s ministry at Thomas- 
ton, he accepted the Agency of the American Bible Society, which 
he held with great fidelity until 1862, when he was chosen Treas- 
urer and General Agent of the Bangor Theological Seminary; and 
this office he held until his death. 

During his period of office the funds of the Seminary increased 
by $163,000. As one of the Board of Trustees remarked, "Undoubt- 
edly due to the marked financial ability, sound judgment, untiring 
zeal, and strict integrity of Mr. Woodhull." 

Kev. Eichard Woodhull was one of the oldest members of the 
Board of Overseers of Bowdoin College, a member, and for some 
years President of the Board of Trustees of the State Hospital for the 
Insane at Augusta, and a Trustee of the Maine Charitable Society, 
besides holding various minor positions of trust and usefulness. 

Next to his integrity, his remarkably sound judgment made his 
services exceedingly valuable in all the important trusts which he 
filled. 

His wisdom in counsel was marked by all, his judgment was 
wonderfully correct on all committees and boards of trust, and es- 
pecially in cases of church difficulties and questions of policy and 
expediency. 

His opinion, when asked and given, always carried great weight 
with it. He was a thorough student in Latin and Mathematics and 
possessed much musical talent. 

He had a logical mind and could sustain his position in an argu- 
ment, and his generous sympathies and warmth of heart made him a 
most useful Christian minister and a model parishioner in his later 
years. 

It has been said of him as a minister of Christ, "that voice of his 
and conscientious face, as he stood and delivered his Master's message, 
an audience, once hearing and seeing, would not soon forget." 

Eev. Eichard Woodhull died at Bangor, Maine, November 12, 
1873, aged 71 years and 10 months. During his long year of suffering 
all the beautiful traits of his lifelong piety shone forth most bril- 
liantly, his obedience, his submission, his faith in God, his singular 
conscientiousness, his love of prayer — these were never clouded, and 
made the pathway of this noble and true man "shine brighter and 
brighter unto the perfect day." 

He was survived by his wife and six children.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXVI. 

John Neilson Woodhull, (M. D.), seventh generation from Kich- 
ard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the second 
son of the Eev. George Spofford Woodhull and Gertrude Neilson. 
He was born July 25, 1807. 

He entered the sophomore class at the College of New Jersey 
(now Princeton University), in 1825, and graduated in 1828. 

Studied medicine with Samuel L. Howell, M. D., of Princeton, 
and graduated from the Medical Department of the University of 
Pennsylvania in 1832. 

He commenced practice at Middletown Point, now Matawan, New 
Jersey, the same year, and in the latter part of 1835 opened an office 
at Trenton, New Jersey, but removed in a short time to Princeton, 
and there in the Spring of 1836, his brother, Alfred A. Woodhull, 
M. D., joined him in partnership. 

Dr. Alfred A. Woodhull died in the following year, but Dr. John 
N. Woodhull continued the practice of his medical profession for 
more than thirty years in Princeton. 

In his early manhood, Dr. Woodhull was very delicate, but having 
overcome that physical weakness, he carried on for many years a 
very extensive and successful country practice, which in later life 
was limited to office consultation. 

He had a marked taste for agriculture as well as for medicine 
and in the early forties purchased a large farm on Stony Brook, be- 
yond Princeton, the cultivation of one-half of which he superintended 
for more than fifteen years. 

While the practice of Dr. Woodhull was both a large and extensive 
one, yet his retentive memory seemed to carry all the details of a case. 

In the sick-room he was inspiring, while his insight into the actual 
condition of his patients was singularly accurate. 

He had a very large acquaintance, and never failed in cordial 
recognition, but he had very few intimates. His manner was both 
genial and reserved. 

He never held office of any kind, nor did he ever engage in or- 
ganized work whether professional, social or civic. He was liberal to 
approved charities, and to the deserving poor, but was unostentatious 
in his benevolence. 

Like all physicians, he performed a large amount of gratuitous 
work. 

Dr. Woodhull never married, his mother and one of her sisters 
constituted his family. He also took into his home, at different times 
sons of his two deceased brothers, and gave them opportunities for 
education they could not otherwise have enjoyed. 

He removed to his residence in Princeton in 1858, and died there 
January 12, 1867. 

His estate was very considerable for one acquired by the practice 
of medicine, and nearly all of it, not included in his farm, he be- 
queathed to the College for the purpose of founding a Professorship. 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 331 



He was by far the most successful practitioner in the extensive 
region covered by his rounds, his very presence creating a trust that 
was doubtless a large factor in that success. 

(See Genealogy, No. 308.) 



BIOGKAPHICAL SKETCH XXVII. 

Alfred Alexander Woodhull, (M. D.), seventh generation from 
Eichard Wodhull L, Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the 
youngest son of the Eev. George Spofford Woodhull and Gertrude 
Neilson. He was born at Cranbury, New Jersey, March 25, 1810. 

He was graduated from the College of New Jersey (now Princeton 
University,) A. B., 1828, and received his degree of A. M. in 1831. 
He was graduated in medicine (M. D.), from the University of Penn- 
sylvania in 1831. 

After a year of hospital practice in Philadelphia, he began the 
practice of medicine at Marietta, Lancaster Co., Penna., in 1832. 

Dr. Woodhull removed to Princeton in 1835, and died there Oc- 
tober 5, 1836. Up to the time of his death he was actively engaged 
in his medical practice. 

By his contemporaries Dr. A. A. Woodhull was described as a 
young man of attractive figure, handsome features, and most winning 
manners. He was public-spirited, taking an active part in town 
affairs (but not holding office) and especially interested in the promo- 
tion of temperance reform. 

He was elected a trustee of the Princeton Presbyterian Church in 
1835. His professional reputation was that of an intelligent, popular, 
and successful physician. 

He had a happy faculty of writing verse, some of which has 
marked poetical merit. Earlier editions of the Presbyterian hymn- 
book contained several of his hymns. During his last illness, when 
assured that recovery was hopeless, he dictated the following beautiful 
lines: 

Traveler dost thou hear the tidings 

Borne unto thy weary ear, 
Soft as angel's gentlest whisper 
Breathing from the upper sphere, 

Sweetly telling 
Thy redemption now is near. 

In the desert's gloomy terrors, 

'Mid the tempest's booming roar, 
Hark! the still small voice of mercy 

Breaking from yon fearful shore, 
Sweetly telling 

All thy toil will soon be o'er. 

Mourner, when the tear of sorrow 

Wells from up thy stricken breast, 
Raise thy streaming eyes to mansions 

Where the weary are at rest, 
Sweetly telling 

Here thou'lt be a welcome guest. 



332 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



Mortal, when death's viewless arrow 

Quivers in thy fluttering heart, 
Lift thy lapsing thoughts to Jesus, 

Who disarms the fatal dart, 
Sweetly telling 

I to thee my peace impart. 

These verses were originally published in the New York Ob- 
server, (probably in the autumn of 1836.) The poem and a sketch 
of the author, may be found in "The Poets of the Church," by Edwin 
F. Hatfield, D. D. 

Anna Maria Salomons, who was married to Dr. Woodhull, was 
born at Princeton, March 30, 1811. They were married, February 
26, 1833. 

Her father was Dr. Dirck G. Salomons, of St. Eustacia, of the 
Dutch West Indies, who had been a student at Princeton, but did not 
graduate there, although he received the honorary degree of A. M. ? 
perhaps with his class, from that institution in 1812. 

He was graduated in Medicine at the College of Physicians and 
Surgeons (now Columbia), New York, in 1812, and returned with his 
family to his father's estate in the West Indies, where he died a few 
years afterward at an early age. 

Dr. Salomons' widow then returned with her two daughters to her 
father, President Smith, of Princeton. 

Mrs. Woodhull's mother was Susan, daughter of the Eev. Samuel 
Stanhope Smith, D. D., and Ann, daughter of the Eev. John Wither- 
spoon, D. D., both Presidents of Princeton College. 

Through the Witherspoon line she was a descendant of John 
Knox the Scottish Reformer, or as the noblemen and freemen of 
Kyle and Cunningham called him, "the first Planter and Chief 
Waterer of God's Church." 

John Witherspoon and Elizabeth Montgomerie married September 
20, 1748; she was the daughter of Eobert Montgomerie, of Craighouse 
Ayrshire, Scotland. 

Their daughter Ann Witherspoon, born July 23, 1749, married 
Samuel Stanhope Smith, in June, 1775. 

Their daughter Susan, born June 23, 1785, married Dirck G. 
Salomons (about the year 1810), records lost. She died at Princeton, 
in June, 1849. 

Their daughter Anna Maria, born March 30, 1811, married Dr. 
A. A. Woodhull, of Marietta, Pa., February 26, 1833. After two years' 
residence at Marietta, they returned in 1835 to Princeton, where she 
was left a widow October 5, 1836. Her only child, a posthumous son, 
was born April 13, 1837. 

(See Genealogy, No. 309.) 

She was married in Philadelphia, November 18, 1850, to William 
R. McCay, of Lewistown, Pa., at which place she died, August 20, 
1862.

BIOGEAPHICAL SKETCH XXVIII. 

Maxwell Woodhull, (Captain United States Navy), seventh gen- 
eration from Kichard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long 
Island, was the only son of Kichard Miller Woodhull and Catherine 
Van Zandt. 

He was born April 2, 1813. On June 4, 1832, he entered the 
Navy by appointment from President Andrew Jackson, and served 
with credit during his entire life. 

He served in the Mediterranean, on the Coast of Africa, on the 
Brazil Station, and in the Gulf of Mexico. 

During the Paraguay expedition he was executive officer of the 
Flag-ship "Sabine," and afterward commanded the Brig "Bain- 
bridge." 

Being attached to the Coast Survey, he surveyed New York Har- 
bor and the obstructions of Hell Gate, reported plans for their re- 
moval, and received the thanks of the Chamber of Commerce of New 
York. He was also engaged on surveys on the New England Coast. 

At the opening of the Civil War he was assigned to special duty 
under the Navy Department, and promoted to the rank of Com- 
mander, July 1, 1861. 

He organized the supply service for the blockading fleet, com- 
manded the "Connecticut," was afterward transferred to the Gun- 
boat "Cimerone," and led a division of the James River Flotilla 
during General George B. McClelland Peninsular Campaign. 

He married, December 13, 1842, Ellen Francis, daughter of Moses 
Poor^ Esq., of Washington, D. C. 

He died in Baltimore, Maryland, February 19, 1863, and was 
buried with military honors, the funeral being held in the City of 
Washington, February 21, 1863, after which the body was taken to 
New York City for interment in the Maxwell family vault in Old 
Trinity Church-yard, where his father and mother were also buried. 

He was survived by a widow, two sons and a daughter.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXIX. 

Calvin Woodhull, sixth generation from Richard Wodhull I., 
Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the second son of Ebenezer 
Woodhull and Sarah Tallcott, and grandson of Colonel Jesse 
Woodhull. 

He was born at Herkimer, New York, April 4, 1813. In 1853 he 
removed to Schoharie County, New York. He married, September 
12, 1844, Gertrude M., daughter of Waterman Watkins. 

His early recollections of Herkimer County in his boyhood days 
are interesting. 



334 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



He witnessed the grading of the first turnpike road from Albany 
to Utica; saw the first four-horse stage go through some months later; 
remembers the laying of the first strap iron railroad track through the 
Mohawk Valley, and saw the first train of cars go by. 

He remembers watching the bateaux being "poled" up the Mo- 
hawk by two men. This was the first mode of transporting goods to 
the settlements in the valley. Each bateau was about 24 feet long 
and carried about two tons. 

He saw the building of the Erie canal through his farm, and was 
a witness of the great celebration, in October, 1825, when the canal 
was open to traffic, and the Hudson was baptized with the waters of 
Lake Erie. 

He has lived to see the four tracks of the New York Central Rail- 
road revolutionize the valley, and the frontier moved to the Hawaiian 
Islands in the dim west of the Pacific ocean. 

At this time, (1904) in his 91st year, he is enjoying good health, a 
sound body, and a clear mind.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXX. 

Geoege Spofford Woodhull, (Hon.), seventh generation from 
Richard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the 
second son of John Woodhull, M. D., and Ann Wikoff. He was born 
at the family homestead at Manalapan, four miles from Freehold, New 
Jersey, December 25, 1814. 

In 1830 he entered Princeton College (now Princeton University), 
graduating with honor in 1833, after which he studied law with Rich- 
ard S. Field, at Princeton, New Jersey, and was admitted to the bar 
in 1839. 

In the year 1842 he opened a law office in Freehold, New Jersey, 
where he practiced for several years, and in April, 1847, he was mar- 
ried to Caroline Mandeville Vroom, youngest child of Guysbert 
Bogert Vroom and Catalina Delamater, of New York City, and niece 
of the late Governor Peter D. Vroom, of New Jersey. 

In 1850 he removed to May's Landing, New Jersey, where he be- 
came the Prosecuting Attorney of Atlantic County, and later held the 
same office for Cape May County. 

He was an ardent Republican, and during this period he became a 
candidate for the State Senate on the Republican ticket. Though the 
district was strongly Democratic, he made such a vigorous canvass, 
that he reduced his opponent's majority to a very small figure. After 
his defeat he continued his efforts on behalf of his party, and a few 
years later, Atlantic County took its place in the Republican column, 
where it has remained ever since.

WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 335 



In 1862 he removed to Camden, New Jersey, and in 1866 was ap- 
pointed by Governor Marcus L. Ward, Justice of the Supreme Court 
of New Jersey. 

During the first administration of President U. S. Grant, Judge 
Woodhull was tendered the office of Associate Justice of the Supreme 
Court of the United States, and although acceptance was strongly 
urged upon him by the Vice-President, Schuyler Colfax, he declined 
the office, deeming the salary inadequate, without private means, for 
the suitable maintenance of a large family, in the City of Washington. 

In 1873 Governor Joel Parker re-nominated him for another term 
of seven years, to succeed himself, the nomination being confirmed 
immediately by the Senate. 

During the years that he sat on the bench, he presided at several 
very important criminal trials, two of which might be classed among 
the causes celebres of the State. In one of these he set aside the 
verdict of the jury, which was very rarely done in the criminal 
jurisprudence of New Jersey. 

The late Eev. Kemper Bocock, of Philadelphia, a clergyman in the 
Episcopal Church, and assistant Editor of The Church Standard, 
was some years ago a newspaper reporter. He wrote thus of the Hon. 
George S. Woodhull in his judicial capacity: 

"'Tall men, suncrowned, who live above the fog, 
In public duty and in private thinking.' 

"The above lines come into my mind as I try to recall the impres- 
sions received of Judge Woodhull by a young reporter who sat 
through the famous Hunter murder trial in Camden, N. J., nearly 
twenty-five years ago. 

"It was one of the most sensational crimes and one of the longest 
murder trials I have known of. The Court House was crowded 
daily, and at times it was not easy to preserve order. 

"The friends of the accused, the army of morbid seekers for the 
gratification of maudlin sympathy with criminals, and the host of 
political rounders who gather about public office buildings made up 
a most motley assemblage. 

"Kichard S. Jenkins, Prosecutor of the Pleas, and his nephew, 
Wilson H. Jenkins, were pitted against Ex-Secretary of the Navy 
George M. Eobeson, Aaron Thompson, and James Matlack Scovel. 

"It was a battle of legal giants, determined to leave no stone 
unturned to gain a victory. Their debates became exciting at times. 
Mr. Eobeson played on all the strings of the harp of pathos, while 
Eichard Jenkins and James Scovel battled fiercely, as if fighting for 
their own lives. On one occasion the prisoner at the bar, moved to 
a frenzy of rage, sprang from his seat, shook his fist at the witness, 
and gave him the lie. 

"In and over all this, Judge Woodhull presided like one who 
lived in a serene clime. There was no air of conscious superiority or 
boredom; but his calm, gentle voice, issuing a quiet order to the tip- 



336 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



staves, or ruling on a point as to which the contending counsel had 
almost seemed ready to come to blows, seemed invariably to introduce 
an element of dignity. It was not as though he took the side of 
the lawyer who carried the point, but rather as if the lawyer had 
taken the side of eternal justice, and the Judge was there to show 
the harmony of the issue with that principle Svhose seat is the bosom 
of God/ 

"The lawyers might be fiery or scorching in their sarcasm, or 
stormy in their wrath with one another, but the Judge seemed an 
incarnation of peace and civilized order. 

"When Hunter sprang up and called the witness a liar, Judge 
WoodhulPs tone was rather that of a mother quieting an unruly child 
than that of a severe magistrate rebuking an offender. It was full 
of sympathy, and yet uncompromisingly firm, so that the incident 
lasted only a few seconds. 

"I can see at this distance, across the years, that his spirit was 
suffering from the strain, but he gave no token of it. He never 
seemed to forget himself or let himself go for a minute. 

"Even at the close of a long and exciting day, his order to the 
officers to keep the doors closed and the spectators in their seats till 
the prisoner had been removed was as naturally spoken as if he had 
been making an observation on the weather, and without the slightest 
trace of impatience at the daily necessity of repetition. 

"I remember Judge Woodhull thus because I have not seen any- 
body else measure up to this rare standard of modest dignity, con- 
scientious justice, and unfailing courtesy in the years that have since 
gone." 

In 1878 many of the legal fraternity urged upon Governor Mc- 
Clellan to re-nominate him for a third term, arguing that although 
a Eepublican he should retain the position which he had filled with 
such dignity and honor. 

Notwithstanding this, the nomination was awarded to Ex-Governor 
Parker, and Judge Woodhull resumed the practice of law with his 
eldest son, John Tennent Woodhull. 

During his eminently useful life, he held the position of Elder 
in three churches, the Old Tennent Church near Freehold, New 
Jersey; the Presbyterian Church at May's Landing, the Eev. Allen 
H. Brown being his close friend and pastor; and the Second Presby- 
terian Church of Camden, New Jersey, the Eev. Louis C. Baker, also 
his warm friend and pastor. He also served as Sunday-school Super- 
intendent for some years in the latter church, and for one term was 
President of the Camden County Bible Society, in which he ever 
showed the deepest interest. 

In him every good cause found an advocate, every down-trodden 
human being found a helpful friend. 

Of his personal appearance one thus describes him: 

"He was nearly six feet in height, gracefully formed, with large 
blue-grey sparkling eyes, erect of carriage and of a dignified easy 
manner." 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 337 



He was the beloved companion and confidante of his children; a 
wise and loving counsellor to all who approached him. His strong 
manly character was most attractive; he was exceedingly fond of 
athletic sports, was a fine shot, an excellent swimmer, a prodigious 
walker, and a horseman of rare skill. 

On March 4, 1881, after a brief illness, this strong man, with the 
heart of a child, having worn throughout his whole career, "the 
white flower of a blameless life," "gave up his pure soul unto his 
Captain Christ under whose colors he had fought so long." 

The following eulogy was pronounced by Mr. Eugene Troth, a 
member of the Camden Bar, after his death: 

"Judge Woodhull had so much magnetism about him, he was such 
an accessible man, so companionable, so congenial, so kind-hearted, 
yet he preserved great and becoming dignity of mind and character. 
His nature had no barren side, it was made up of the pure, the good, 
the loving, the tender and true. 

"The elements were so mixed in this man, that the adamant and 
the angles which made up the vigor of his manhood lost none of their 
strength because they were hidden beneath the flowers of chivalric 
grace and esthetic culture." 

He sleeps with many of his name, in the peaceful graveyard of 
the Old Tennent Church near Freehold, Monmouth County, New 
Jersey. 

From the funeral discourse by the Eev. Louis C. Baker (after- 
ward published as a memorial by the Camden Bar), is the following: 

"In the 37th verse of the 37th Psalm it is written: 'Mark the 
perfect man and behold the upright; for the end of that man is peace.' 

"After an intimate acquaintance for many years with Judge 
Woodhull, I do not hesitate to say that these words seem to me to 
be a truer description of him than any other man I have ever known. 

"As I looked upon his face not long after death — he seemed to 
lie before me like an old knight, who had fallen in battle indeed, 
but who in falling, had won the greatest of all victories, the victory 
over self and the world." 

He left a widow, two daughters and four sons. 

(See Genealogy, 'No. 312.) 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXXI. 

William Wikoff Woodhull, (Ph. D.), seventh generation from 
Eichard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the 
third son of John Tennent Woodhull, M. D., and Ann Wikoff. He 
was born July 28, 1817. 

He was prepared for college by tutors at his father's home at 
Manalapan, Monmouth County, New Jersey, and entered the College 
of New Jersey (now Princeton University), at the age of thirteen, 
graduating at sixteen at the head of his class in 1833. 



338 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



For a brief period he was a tutor in the college, and all his life 
was spent in imparting knowledge. 

He was the head of a very successful Classical School in Freehold, 
New Jersey, for many years assisted by his brother Charles Frederick 
Woodhull, who was also a graduate of the College of New Jersey, 
and who later opened a Classical School for boys in Camden, New 
Jersey. 

William Wikoff Woodhull was a man of superior intellect and 
attainments, but one whose retiring disposition deterred him from 
seeking the higher college position he could have filled so creditably. 

He was a man of a deeply religious nature, a profound thinker 
and a gentleman of the old school. When a young man of thirty he 
wrote upon the subject of teaching as follows: (The quotation oc- 
curs in a letter written February 10, 1847, to the Eev. Allen H. 
Brown, then pastor of the May's Landing Presbyterian Church, 
Atlantic County, New Jersey.) 

"I am glad to hear that you are turning your thoughts and efforts 
towards the furtherance of the cause of education throughout the 
Pines, and I verily believe that you give it its proper place when 
you rank it 'Next in importance to the promotion of religion/ 

"I consider the office of the teacher second only to that of the 
preacher of the Gospel, and the longer I live, the more difficult it 
is for me to comprehend, why it is, that most people take so little 
interest in this matter, and are so regardless of the qualifications, 
and especially of the moral and religious character of those whom 
they employ to instruct their children." 

In 1867 the degree of "Doctor of Philosophy" was conferred upon 
him by his Alma Mater. 

In his later life Dr. Woodhull was for a time Head Master of the 
Trenton Academy; he also taught for several years in the Classical 
School of Professor George Eastman, in Philadelphia. 

He married, April 6, 1852, Ellen Conover Wikoff, of Freehold, 
New Jersey. They had no children.

BIOGEAPHICAL SKETCH XXXII. 

Henky William Beck Woodhull, (M. D.), seventh generation 
from Eichard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was 
the only son of Gilbert Smith Woodhull, M. D., and Charlotte Wikoff. 
He was born at Manalapan, Monmouth County, New Jersey, October 
3, 1819. He was graduated from the College of New Jersey in 1838, 
and after conducting for three years the paternal farm (a part of the 
estate of his grandfather), commenced the study of medicine in the 
City of New York and graduated from the College of Physicians 
and Surgeons there in 1845. He commenced the practice of his pro- 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 339 



fession at New Brunswick, New Jersey, and on May 12th, 1847, 
married Azelia, youngest child of Joseph Giraud, a retired merchant 
of the City of New York, and a descendant of Pierre Giraud, a Hugue- 
not refugee of 1685. Dr. Woodhull removed to the City of New 
York in 1854, and practiced there, in Long Island City, and in 
Brooklyn, removing to the last named place in 1879. 

He was an enthusiastic, efficient, and popular staff-officer of the 
National Guard of the State of New York, holding a commission as 
surgeon of the Twelfth Eegiment from 1855 to 1857, and as brigade- 
surgeon (with the rank of major) of the old Fourth Brigade, First 
Division, from 1857 to 1869. 

As a physician, Dr. Woodhull was acute in diagnosis, skillful in 
therapeutics, and assiduous and devoted in his attention to his cases. 
While not without his preferences among the various departments 
of medicine and surgery, he resisted the tendency to sink into a 
specialty, and performed with ability and effectiveness the important 
and symmetrical functions of the general practitioner. In his inter- 
course with his patients, his manner was habitually cheerful, ani- 
mating, and encouraging, and professional ability and personal in- 
fluence were so combined in him that it was no uncommon thing for 
his patients to insist upon his services exclusively, even after they 
had removed to great distances. 

He died at his home in the (then) City of Brooklyn, on Januarv 
20th, 1894.

BIOGEAPHICAL SKETCH XXXIII. 

Heney Isaac Woodhull, seventh generation from Eichard Wod- 
hull L, Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the eldest son 
of Samuel Woodhull and Mary Ann Bull. He was born June 
19, 1824. 

In 1869 he joined his two brothers, Sereno Dwight and William 
Sturges, at Salt Lake City, Utah, where for two years before they 
had started a mining venture. 

The three brothers opened an office, set up a mill and smelting 
works, and built a cabin up in the mountains, about twenty miles 
from Salt Lake City. 

After their claim was staked out they employed about one hun- 
dred miners and other workmen, and started the mining business 
under the firm name of "Woodhull Brothers." 

They sent out the first bullion ever produced in the State of 
Utah. It was taken from Gordon's Big Cottonwood Canyon. For a 
time they were greatly encouraged, but the venture was no easy one. 
All the ore had to be hauled by mule-team down the mountain and 
through the valleys for 20 miles to Salt Lake City.

The death of Henry Isaac Woodhull in August, 1870, in a great 
measure, broke up the enterprise, the two remaining brothers aban- 
doning the work soon after. 

Henry Isaac Woodhull was a man much respected and beloved, 
and his death was keenly felt among his friends. He was a man of 
Christian character, a kind and indulgent father, and a devoted hus- 
band. He was also a staunch Free-Mason. 

He married, July 25, 1848, Mary W. Tyrrell. They had four 
children.

Mekeitt Smith Woodhull, seventh generation from Richard 
Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the only child 
of Colonel Charles, and his wife Mary (or Polly) Woodhull. He was 
born August 16, 1824. 

"During his boyhood and youth he was given good educational 
advantages, attending both the public schools and Miller's Academy. 

"On attaining his majority Captain Woodhull went as a sailor 
on board a merchant vessel plying between New York and Liverpool, 
England, and later made two trips to China. 

"Being a wide-awake, capable and reliable young man, he soon 
won promotion, and was given positions of great responsibility. He 
rose steadily, and for some time had command of a coasting steamer 
running between New York and Southern ports. 

"He married, November 11, 1885, Mrs. Mary Jones (widow of 
Benjamin H. Jones). In 1890 he retired from the sea, having spent 
about forty-five years upon the water. 

"In business affairs Captain Woodhull prospered, and after a 
useful and well spent life he passed away August 15, 1892. 

"He was a man of the highest respectability, and those who were 
most intimately associated with him speak in unqualified terms of his 
sterling integrity, his honor in business, and his fidelity to all the 
duties of public and private life."

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXXY. 

John Alphetjs Woodhull, (Rev.), seventh generation from Rich- 
ard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the third 
son of Richard Woodhull and Frances Greene. He was born October 
30, 1825, near Lake Ronkonkoma, Suffolk County, Long Island. 

We read of clergymen, whose sermons set the standard of English 
for the community in which they lived, as well as the standard of 
spiritual excellence; whose lives inspired every man in the parish to

WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 341 



greater manliness and courage and awakened the interest in a broader 
world than the little eddying current of village life. 

Ways and means never stood in the way of this type of clergyman, 
nor were they obstacles to his disciples. Barriers appeared only to be 
overcome; they were hazards, tests of strength only, and the man 
was he who surmounted the obstacles, not he who turned away and 
said "I was thwarted." 

Such a clergyman was John Alpheus Woodhull, son of Eichard 
Woodhull and one of ten children, born in an interesting old house 
near the shores of beautiful Lake Eonkonkoma, where the home place, 
with its heritage of hue old trees, was a portion of that original prop- 
erty of 10,800 acres purchased by his first American ancestor, Eichard 
Wodhull, in 1665. 

His mother was Frances Greene, of the Vermont family of Greenes, 
and not remotely connected with General Greene of Eevolutionary 
fame. 

From his earliest years, he evinced a strong character, an unusual 
sense of personal dignity, fastidious taste, and a gift of eloquence 
that was a source of amusement to his fun loving father, who when he 
found him delivering a long extemporaneous sermon to his astonished 
brothers called him "little parson" and declared "I shall send that boy 
to college." 

When he was only nine years old, his father died and his young 
mother found that the property, that she had supposed large, was 
involved in debt and she was obliged to leave the large house for a 
smaller place and face, alone, the hard problem of bringing up the 
children on limited means. 

After a period of living with distant relatives, he at length made 
his home with Deacon Joel Brown, of Eocky Point, twenty miles or 
more from his old home, but with a man famed for the beauty of his 
character and the lovableness of his spirit. 

Into this home of plain living and high thinking, the young 
student came. He helped on the farm and walked through the pic- 
turesque woods to school. He was a reticent proud boy, with his own 
thoughts about life and the future. 

From his father, he had learned the pride in his race but in the 
boy, it had early passed into a phase of idealism, — character was the 
measure of the man. 

If he the descendant of kings and earls was without means and out- 
ward show of dignity, he might yet be of royal soul, — that no outward 
circumstance could touch. Material dignities, material obstacles were 
thus ignored, the life of the spirit usurped complete sway. 

At the Academy, his reverence and enthusiastic admiration were 
stirred for Homer and Virgil, Theocritus and Horace, Demosthenes 
and Cicero, and he early became a good classical scholar. 

He stored his mind with long passages from Shakespeare and 
Milton, Pope and Cowper, Thomson and Young, Burns and Words- 
worth, and recited these in his long walks through the woods. 



342 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



He wrote easily and was keen in debate. For mathematics, he 
cared little except for Geometry, that appealed to his imagination and 
his sense of beauty. 

Before he entered Yale, he distinguished himself as a teacher who 
controlled by tact and force of personality, and interested his students 
by a variety of resource and keenness of wit. 

At Yale College, he led a quiet student life, was sometimes quoted 
for his quaint humor and formed some life long friendships. 

His health caused much anxiety and although he was absent 
months at a time, he succeeded in graduating with his class in 1850 
and held creditable rank. 

He had never felt any hesitation about his life work and the year 
after his graduation from Yale, he entered Bangor Theological Sem- 
inary. His independence of thought led him to adopt a custom of an 
earlier day in migrating from Seminary to Seminary, in pursuit of the 
professor best versed in a given subject. 

In following this plan, he went from Bangor to Yale, and finally 
graduated at Auburn Theological Seminary in 1853. In July follow- 
ing, he was married to Joanna Brown whom he had known from child- 
hood, and whose buoyancy of spirit and tenderness of devotion made 
sunshine in dark days of struggle with ill health; whose open-hearted 
hospitality and genial sympathy aided him in church work for thirty- 
four years; and whose unselfish spirit never faltered when life with 
an unpractical idealist and eight small children brought serious prob- 
lems that must be practically solved. 

In 1852, the Kev. John Alpheus Woodhull had been licensed to 
preach by the Long Island Congregational Association, but for two 
years after his graduation from Auburn, the frailty of his health pre- 
vented his taking a permanent charge. 

After preaching for a time at Union Center, New York, and at 
Freeport, New York, he was in 1856 ordained pastor of the Congre- 
gational Church at Wadhanr's Mills, Essex Co., New York, where he 
began his preaching in 1855. Two years later, he removed to New 
Village, in his native county, where on account of his outspoken views 
on the question of anti-slavery certain difficulties arose that led to his 
accepting the pastorate of the church at Commacs in the same county, 
where he remained for seven years, from 1859-1866. 

The following three years were spent at Northville, also in Suffolk 
County, where he suffered from the dissensions of pro slavery mem- 
bers of the parish but overcame opposition by the dignity of his bear- 
ing and by tact. 

Here he not only preached but started an Academy, for the better 
education of the older children and young people. 

The next three years were spent as pastor of the First Congrega- 
tional Church of New Boston, Connecticut, and in 1872 he removed to 
Grot on, where he was installed December 24th, 1873. 

He was Chairman of the School Board, and also became interested 
in the history of both the town and church, and wrote "A Keview of

of its ministers from 1704-1876." 

For ten years, he was again in his native county, this time at 
Baiting Hollow. From here he removed to Middlefield, Massachu- 
setts, where in 1887 he was called upon to bear the loss by death of his 
wife. 

In 1889 he married Mrs. Eliza Miller Church and removed to 
Plainfield, Massachusetts, where he preached for seven years. Then 
after an active service in the Ministry of over forty years he retired 
and resided in Chicago until his death, February 1, 1902. He was 
interred beside his wife and two children in the historic Ledyard 
Cemetery, at Groton, Connecticut, where his widow has erected a sub- 
stantial monument to his memory. 

In the new stone church at Groton, is a window designed by Mr. 
Frederick Wilson, executed by Tiffany and given as a memorial to the 
Eev. John A. Woodhull, by his wife Eliza Miller Woodhull. 

His life, like that of the parson in the Deserted Village, ran its 
unworldly course; of worldly ambition, he knew little, of the aspira- 
tion for all that was high and noble and beautiful, he knew much. 

There was no community that was ever touched by his life that 
was not ennobled; young men went to college, libraries were started, 
public sentiment grew nobler and broader. 

One of his parishioners quoted Chaucer's well known lines in 
characterizing the Eev. John Alpheus Woodhull, and I know of no 
more fitting summary with which to conclude this sketch. 

" He waited after no pompe 

ne reverence, 
Ne maked him no spiced conscience, 
But Cristes lore, and his 

apostles twelve, 
He taught, but first he folwed 

it himselve." 

Of his children, four sons and one daughter survive him.

BIOGKAPHICAL SKETCH XXXVI. 

Gilbert Tenxent Woodhull, (Bev.), (D. D.), seventh genera- 
tion from Bichard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, 
was born February 18, 1827, at Manalapan, Monmouth Co., New 
Jersey. 

He was the seventh son of John Tennent Woodhull, M. D., and 
Ann Wikoff . He attended the school taught by his brother William, 
later a noted classical teacher, and was by him prepared for college. 

He was graduated from the College of New Jersey (now Princeton 
University), in 1852; and from Princeton Theological Seminary in 



344 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



1855, and was appointed Tutor in Mathematics at Princeton which 
position he held from 1854 to 1855. 

Two years were spent in South Jersey, as stated supply to the Con- 
gregation of May's Landing and Tuckahoe. 

While on a visit to his friend and fellow-student, the Eev. Edwin 
R. Bower, who was pastor at Wappinger's Falls, New York, he 
preached to the neighboring congregation at Fishkill, whose pulpit 
was then vacant, the result being a call to the pastorate. 

He was ordained and installed by the Presbytery of North River, 
on November 10, 1857, and was the faithful and beloved pastor of the 
small, scattered, but loyal congregation from 1857 to 1867. 

Meanwhile, three of his College and Seminary fellow students, the 
Revs. Isaac NT. Rendall, Lorenzo Westcott, and Edwin R. Bower had 
become Professors at Lincoln University, near Oxford, Chester Co., 
Penna., the first institution founded in the United States for the 
higher education of colored youth. 

In 1869, the growth of the work demanded an additional professor 
and Mr. Woodhull's scholarship, character and general fitness for the 
position being brought before the Trustees by his college friends, an 
invitation was extended to, and accepted by him to become Professor 
of Greek and Latin. 

Two years later a Professor of Latin was added to the Faculty, and 
Mr. Woodhull became Charles Avery Professor of Greek. 

For two years he lived at Oxford four miles distant, and during 
that period it was his custom to ride on horseback to his classes. 

Later, he and his family occupied the home near the University, 
which a quarter of a century's residence has associated with his name. 

In 1881, Mr. Woodhull received the degree of Doctor of Divinity, 
from Princeton University, an honor of which he was eminently 
worthy. 

He possessed great educational gifts and acquirements. 

President Rendall, his friend and colleague of many years, speaks 
of him as a choice and very valuable man for their common work, by 
his faithful, quiet, steady, accurate instruction, his power of inducing 
thoroughness in study, and his influence upon the mental training of 
the students. 

Order was kept in the class-room solely by his dignified presence, 
for here as elsewhere, appeared the peculiar and remarkable combina- 
tion, for which Dr. Woodhull was justly noted, that of dignity, gravity, 
reserve and firmness together with uniform courtesy and gentleness. 

His placid demeanor gained, from one class at least, the familiar 
name among themselves of "Moses." 

Yet he could ask one who had made a specially unreasonable com- 
plaint concerning his grade, to hand it back that it might be reduced 
to its merits. 

It was understood by the students that the Professor of Greek was 
not to be trifled with. On one occasion an unprepared student was 
"splashing about" in the effort to escape total failure in his poorly 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 345 



prepared recitation, when Dr. Woodhull exclaimed "Mr. you 

can extemporize in English and perhaps also in Latin, but you can't 
extemporize in Greek." 

His pupils admired and loved him, and liked to fancy that his 
study of Greek had made him classic in features, hair, attire and walk, 
and in every sentence of his sermons; and even declared that he talked 
Greek to his horse. 

Outside of the class-room, the students proved his accessibility and 
personal kindness, feeling that they were welcomed in his study by a 
genuine friend, to whom they could unbosom their cares. 

Like many of his race and name, he was a strong Eepublican, yet 
he took little part in political or civil affairs, although ever warmly 
attached to the best traditions of his party. 

As a preacher he gave forth the utterance of a well informed 
theologian and an ardent believer; each sermon bore the marks of 
careful study, scholarly interpretation, decided conviction, spiritual 
experience, clear, ripe and well ordered thinking, sympathetic fidelity 
of application and notably cultured and chaste expression, while the 
delivery was with loving persuasion and impressiveness. 

His preaching "day" always excited the glad expectation of pleas- 
ure and profit, and the students competed for the front seats. 

His public prayers, it may be added, were reverent, spiritual and 
comprehensive, distinguished by simplicity and elevation of diction. 

Dr. Woodhull regarded his labors at Lincoln as part of the mis- 
sionary work of the Church. When the Mission Sabbath School, in 
the little village contiguous to the University, was at a low ebb he, 
with his eldest daughter, taking the feeble organization in hand, was 
the means of recovering the school. 

He also established and carried on a preaching service, and brought 
the mission well forward toward its present issue in the village 
Chapel, now under the charge of the Presbyterian Congregation of 
Oxford. 

Dr. WoodhuH's only publication was an address in the Theologi- 
cal Department of the University, in September, 1885. It was en- 
titled "The Importance and Eesponsibility of Ministerial Work/' and 
was printed by request. 

Notwithstanding his kindliness and affability, Dr. Woodhull was 
seldom seen in society. He loved better the privacy of his own home, 
where his bright, cheerful, uncomplaining spirit made him the idol 
of the household. 

He was never known to lose control of his temper, while his 
consideration for others and his appreciation of anything done for 
himself were very marked. 

He had a deep sense of humor and thoroughly enjoyed a joke at 
his own expense. 

He was a noted horseman for many years, and a pedestrian as 
well, walking almost daily for exercise, usually accompanied by a 
favorite hunting dog. 



346 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



He had a marked degree of muscular strength, and when near the 
age of three score and ten, he surprised his younger colleagues by 
raising himself up with his hands to the branch of a tree well 
overhead. 

He was never in haste, on the contrary very deliberate, yet accu- 
rate and effective. 

These qualities, and his renowned coolness and courage, came into 
play when he was the young pastor at Fishkill, when, revolver in 
hand, he stepped from the parsonage door and confronted a stalwart 
stranger clad in a long dark cloak and slouched hat. 

Coolly pointing the revolver at the intruder in such a manner 
that the moonlight flashed across the ominous looking weapon, the 
young minister calmly ordered the intruder to turn round and make 
his way to the gate, which, followed by Mr. Woodhull, he obediently 
did, the raised weapon often meeting him when he ventured to pause 
and look back. The road reached, the man was dismissed with a 
warning. 

Very different treatment was accorded the suppliant stranger. 
Two interesting cases were those of a runaway slave from the South, 
and a young French lad whose English was limited to the one word 
"work." 

This helpless youth was taken into the Doctor's family, given 
employment, and taught to read and speak the English language. 
A French Bible was given to him, the first he had ever seen, having 
been brought up a Eoman Catholic. Now grown to man's estate, 
this protege is doing well and in the enjoyment of prosperity. 

Though Dr. Woodhull had the courtly manners of the old school, 
it was without stiffness; such gracious dignity is rarely seen, and 
akin to this, another chief element in the universal esteem and affec- 
tion that gathers about his memory: it was expressed at the time of 
his death in the tribute paid by the great poet in "In Memoriam" 
to the friend he mourned: 

" And thus he bore without abuse 
The good old name of Gentleman." 

Other lines might be fitly applied to him from the same poem — 
addressed to one who also was a Professor of Greek, and whom the 
Lincoln Professor in many ways resembled: 

" And thou art worthy, full of power, 
As gentle, liberal-minded, great, 
Consistent, wearing all that weight 
Of learning lightly as a flower." 

One of the letters of sympathy received by Mrs. Woodhull after 
her husband's death, was from his cousin, a surgeon and Colonel in 
the United States Army, at whose home in Princeton, New Jersey, 
in College and Seminary days, the subject of this sketch had been 
"a frequent and welcome visitor." 

It is thus Colonel Woodhull wrote of him: "I know that his 
record has constantly been just such as one would desire for effi- 



WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 347 



eiency and for reputation — a life of intelligence and culture, tending 
in the words so conspicuous at Princeton, to 'the advancement of 
sound learning and true religion/ " 

"True religion" was the source and strength of the life and char- 
acter thus briefly sketched. She who knew him best writes that "it 
was his habit for many years to rise early each morning for the 
purpose of uninterrupted meditation and prayer in the privacy of 
his study. As it was said of Enoch, 'he walked with God/ " 

Dr. Woodhull rested from his labors on February 11, 1898. Dur- 
ing his brief illness he was able to talk little, but he "held fast the 
beginning of his confidence steadfast unto the end" and among his 
last words were "Oh, Jesus loves me," and "All is well." 

Funeral addresses were made by the Eev. Isaac N". Kendall, D. D., 
President of Lincoln University, his colleague for twenty-nine years, 
and the Eev. William R. Bingham, D. D., President of the Board of 
Trustees. He was buried at Oxford beside a much loved and mourned 
little son. 

Gilbert Tennent Woodhull married. May 14, 1862, Elizabeth, 
daughter of William Besley Waldo and Jane Ann Bruce, of New York 
City. 

Mrs. Woodhull was descended in the eighth generation from 
Cornelius Waldo, of Chelmsford, Mass., who died in the year 1700. 

Dr. Woodhull was survived by his widow, one son and four daugh- 
ters.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXXVIII. 

Addison Waddell Woodhull, (M. D.), seventh generation from 
Eichard Wodhull I., Patentee of Brookhaven, Long Island, was the 
youngest son of John Woodhull, M. D., and Ann Wikoff. 

He was born at Manalapan, Monmouth County, New Jersey, Au- 
gust 13, 1831, and was graduated from the College of New Jersey 
(now Princeton University), in 1854. 

He subsequently studied medicine under his father's direction 
and under those famous physicians, Valentine Mott and VanBuren, 
and in 1856, received from the New York Medical University the 
degree of M. D., with the highest honors. 

He was soon after appointed physician to the penitentiary on 
Blackwell's Island and performed the duties of that office for one 
year. 

In 1857, he removed to Newark, N. J., and there established him- 
self in the practice of his profession, which he left at the com- 
mencement of the war of the Eebellion, responded to his country's 
call and accepted the appointment of Assistant Surgeon of the Fifth 
New Jersey Volunteers. In this connection he remained until Febru- 
ary 6th, 1862, when he was promoted Surgeon of the Ninth Regi- 
ment. 

In the fall of the same year he was appointed surgeon-in-charge 
of the Hammond General Hospital, at Beaufort, where he remained 
until he was again called into the field by the departure of General 
Heckman for South Carolina, when he was made surgeon of Heck- 
man's Star Brigade. 

He superintended the erection of the Mansfield General Hospital 
at Morehead City, North Carolina, which was pronounced a model 
institution of its kind.

(See Genealogy, No. 323.) 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH XXXIX. 

William Wateks Woodhull, (Pay Inspector United States 
Navy), seventh generation from Richard Wodhull I., Patentee of 
Brookhaven, Long Island, was the second son of Ezra Reeves Wood- 
hull and Elizabeth Waters. 

He was born June 15, 1836. His early education was received 
in Philadelphia, where he later married. 

He entered the Navy May 13, 1863, and served with distinction 
until its close, and since that time has done duty on every important 
foreign station and on most of those of the home stations. 

His first service was on the gunboat "Delaware" in the Sounds 
of North Carolina, under Rear Admiral S. P. Lee. 

In 1864, he was in the fleet on the James River that supported 
General Butler in his advance on Richmond, and continued in that 
service until the evacuation. The "Delaware" was constantly at the 
front, and was one of the vessels that protected the constructors of 
the Dutch Gap Canal, and was the first vessel to enter Richmond 
after the evacuation. Later the "Delaware" was transferred to the 
Potomac Flotilla, and was one of the vessels assigned to patrol the 
river in search of Booth, the assassin of President Lincoln. 

His first sea service, after the Civil War, was in the U. S. S. 
"Yantic" in 1867, when that vessel was sent to Tampico to receive 
and protect Emperor Maximilian, but which was unfortunately too 
late, as he was shot by his captors before the "Yantic" arrived. 

In 1869 he was detailed to the "Miantonomah" when she was sent 
to Portland, Me., with the fleet of Monitors to receive from England 
the remains of Peabody, from the British battleship "Monarch," 
which brought the body of that distinguished patriot to this country. 
Admiral Farragut was in command, and this was his last duty, as he 
died a few months later. 

From 1870 to 1873 William Waters Woodhull was attached to the 
sloop-of-war "Shenandoah" on the European Station, and during the 



350 WOODHULL GENEALOGY. 



Franco-Prussian war was stationed at Havre under orders of the Amer- 
ican Minister, Hon. E. B. Washburn. The officers were among the 
first to visit Paris after the siege where they were very hospitably 
entertained by the Minister. The "Shenandoah" visited all the prin- 
cipal ports in the north of Europe and in the Mediterranean, going 
as far East as the Holy Land. 

From 1877 to 1879 he was in charge of the Naval Depot at 
Nagasaki, Japan, and Purchasing Officer of the China Station. 

From 1881 to 1884 served on the "Lackawanna" in the South 
Pacific. It was this vessel that conveyed Messrs. Trescott and Blaine, 
Peace Commissioners to Chili, from Panama to Valparaiso in 1882. 
In 1883 the "Lackawanna" was sent to Honolulu to take part, with 
ships of other nations, in the coronation of Kalakaua as King of the 
Hawaiian Islands. 

From 1890 to 1893 he was attached to the cruiser "Baltimore," 
commanded by Captain Schley, which vessel carried the remains of 
Ericsson, the Swedish inventor of the monitor, from New York to 
Stockholm, and later was attached to the European Squadron. While 
in Stockholm the King visited the ship, and entertained the officers at 
dinner at the palace. They were also very hospitably entertained by
